All are dax functions, Replace A2 with the column name

Create a new column

=MID(MID(Table[ID],1+FIND("|",SUBSTITUTE(Table[ID],":","|",2)),100),1,FIND("|",SUBSTITUTE(MID(Table[ID],1+FIND("|",SUBSTITUTE(Table[ID],":","|",2)),100),"-","|",LEN(MID(Table[ID],1+FIND("|",SUBSTITUTE(Table[ID],":","|",2)),100))-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(MID(Table[ID],1+FIND("|",SUBSTITUTE(Table[ID],":","|",2)),100),"-",""))))-1)
