Remove Decimal Places when data is NOT numeric

Hello, I have data being pulled from surveys to our team members.  There are three options from them to pick from and there is a free form response as well where they can input anything they'd like.  I am trying to remove the decimal places, but since data is not numeric it's not allowing me to and I'm not finding a way around it.  I thought of assigning each "option" a number like internal online resource is 1, peer is 2, etc. but since we have free form text that wont work .  Any ideas?Decimal Places.png

@DuarteRaminhosB @V-lianl-msft    I figured it out, even though decimal places is greyed out, you can still manually enter "0" in the field.

Hi @jcastr02 ,

 

I didn't quite understand but seems like a simple request.

 

Is that text is that it? You can split by delimiter inside the Power Query after the comma.

Can you specify your data a bit better?
