Split/Extract text from last delimiter - right to left

Hey guys,

 

i have this kinda data:

  •  

    item

    1

    1.1
    1.2
    1.2.1
    1.2.2
    1.3
    1.3.1

    1.3.2

    1.3.3

    1.3.4

    1.3.4.1
    1.3.4.2
    1.3.4.2.1
    1.3.4.2.1
    2
    2.1

i want to extract 1 number before the last "."(dot/point) (between the last two ".")

The 'new' column should be like this:

item

extracted number

1

null

1.11
1.21
1.2.12
1.2.22
1.31
1.3.13

1.3.2

3

1.3.3

3

1.3.4

3

1.3.4.14
1.3.4.24
1.3.4.2.12
1.3.4.2.12
2null
2.12

note: some items of it ends up with two characters... 22.1.1.10

how can i do this kinda thing?

Maybe:

 

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i45WyixJzVWK1YlWMoSQejDaCEYjROBixjAaLmeMkEOSNUGwkFSaIKk1QTIfzosFAA==", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [Column1 = _t]),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Column1", type text}}),
    #"Promoted Headers" = Table.PromoteHeaders(#"Changed Type", [PromoteAllScalars=true]),
    #"Changed Type1" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Promoted Headers",{{"item", type text}}),
    #"Split Column by Delimiter" = Table.SplitColumn(#"Changed Type1", "item", Splitter.SplitTextByEachDelimiter({"."}, QuoteStyle.Csv, true), {"item.1", "item.2"}),
    #"Changed Type2" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Split Column by Delimiter",{{"item.1", type text}, {"item.2", Int64.Type}}),
    #"Split Column by Delimiter1" = Table.SplitColumn(#"Changed Type2", "item.1", Splitter.SplitTextByEachDelimiter({"."}, QuoteStyle.Csv, true), {"item.1.1", "item.1.2"}),
    #"Changed Type3" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Split Column by Delimiter1",{{"item.1.1", type text}, {"item.1.2", Int64.Type}}),
    #"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(#"Changed Type3", "Custom", each if [item.2] = null and [item.1.2] = null then [item.1.1] else if [item.1.2] = null then [item.2] else [item.1.2]),
    #"Changed Type4" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(#"Added Custom",{{"Custom", Int64.Type}})
in
    #"Changed Type4"
