Qliksense Wildmatch -> Power BI DAX

Recently moved from Qlik to Power BI and very new to using DAX

 

What would be the euqivalent to the Wildmatch function (please refer to image)

- basically what i have to do is combining several values(usually its just one) and then renaming them

 

If there would be a better solution i am happy to learn

Hi, @baneworth 

 

Based on your description, I'd like to suggest you use FIND(), SEARCH(), CONTAINSSTRING(), CONTAINSSTRINGEXACT().

 

Here is the functions for text.

1. Text connection functions :  

 

CONCATENATE(<text1>, <text2>)
CONCATENATEX(<table>, <expression>, [delimiter])
COMBINEVALUES(<delimiter>, <expression>, <expression>[, <expression>]…)
DISTINCT(SELECTCOLUMNS(DimDate, "Month", COMBINEVALUES(",", [MonthName], [CalendarYear])))

 

2. Text search functions : 

 

FIND(<find_text>, <within_text>[, [<start_num>][, <NotFoundValue>]])  
SEARCH(<find_text>, <within_text>[, [<start_num>][, <NotFoundValue>]]) 
CONTAINSSTRING(<within_text>, <find_text>) 
CONTAINSSTRINGEXACT(<within_text>, <find_text>)

 

3. Formatting text functions : 

 

FIXED(<number>, <decimals>, <no_commas>)  
FORMAT(<value>, <format_string>)

 

4. Intercepting text functions : 

 

LEFT(<text>, <num_chars>)
RIGHT(<text>, <num_chars>)  
MID(<text>, <start_num>, <num_chars>) 

 

5. Replace text : 

 

REPLACE(<old_text>, <start_num>, <num_chars>, <new_text>)  
SUBSTITUTE(<text>, <old_text>, <new_text>, <instance_num>) 

 

 

For further information, please refer to the official document .

 

Best Regards

Allan
