Re: Split numbers from longer text

Just modify the dax above:

```Column =
VAR v_PercentPos = SEARCH( "%", 'Table'[Data], 1, 0 )
VAR _var = TRIM( RIGHT( LEFT( 'Table'[Data], v_PercentPos ), 3 ) )
RETURN
IF(_var = "00%", "100%", _var)```

Or another way is to use python script:

```# 'dataset' holds the input data for this script

import pandas as pd

dataset['Result'] = dataset['Data'].str.extract('\s(100%|(\d{1,2}(\.\d+)*)%)')[0]```

Hi @WJ876400 ,

Try this:

```Column =
VAR v_PercentPos = SEARCH( "%", 'Table'[Field], 1, 0 )
RETURN
TRIM( RIGHT( LEFT( 'Table'[Field], v_PercentPos ), 4 ) )```

Thanks.

Please accept this as a solution if it satisfies the requirement. Appreciate your Kudos. 🙂
