Re: Searching for first two letters in DAX

Hi @hozefamk

 

You could try something along these lines

 

Column = 
    SWITCH(
           TRUE() ,
           MID('Table'[ICODE],1,2) = "51" , 'Table'[Computers] ,
           MID('Table'[ICODE],1,2) = "11" , 'Table'[Raw Materials] ,
           BLANK()
          )
