Replace Values in a column - Please Help

Hi,

I need to remove  and , charecters from the below column  values:

EMPT     ÂÂ

 

and I have used the below query , but it does not work for me:

 

#"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(#"Extracted Text Range", "Custom", each Text.Replace(Text.Remove([UNIT_STR_QTY],{"Â", "Ã"}), "#(00A0),#(00A0)", ""))

 

the above query gives me the below value:

EMPT‚ ‚ ‚ ‚ ‚ ‚

 

now If I just use the above query as :

#"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(#"Extracted Text Range", "Custom", each Text.Remove(Text.Remove([UNIT_STR_QTY],{"Â", "Ã"}), {","})),

 

It does not work for me and it still gives me:

EMPT‚ ‚ ‚ ‚ ‚ ‚

 

Please help me.

Re: Replace Values in a column - Please Help

Yo can split the column from the first Ã and remove everything to the right of it.

also this will work:

    #"Replaced Value" = Table.ReplaceValue(#"Changed Type","Â","",Replacer.ReplaceText,{"Column1"}),
    #"Replaced Value1" = Table.ReplaceValue(#"Replaced Value","Â","",Replacer.ReplaceText,{"Column1"})
in
    #"Replaced Value1"

for the particular example given. If you have a more variety of data, please show a little more so i can adjust my methods.
