Hi @AnandAmirtharaj,


What's your expected result?


In DAX, REPLACE replaces part of a text string, based on the number of characters you specify, with a different text string.


Please provide us more information, so that we can make further analysis.

Re: Replace dynamic values in Query editor

Hi v-caliao-msft,


The field will always contain example as below


Actual field (single column):;;


Expected Result field (single column): EmployeeID1, EmployeeID2.... and so on


Here is the above scenario i always wanted to extract only Employee ID i.e. the field to say EmployeeID1, Employee2 and so on. But the challenge is (refereing above example) the numbers 11 and 32 and so on.... could be any number that will change dynamically


Please help !
