Re: how to fetch string from paragraph

So, generally you use FIND or SEARCH to locate a keyword and then feed this information into RIGHT, MID, or LEFT to extract the information that you want.

@Satish_Kumar

May be I am over simplifying your requirement.

But does something like this won't work?

New = SUBSTITUTE(Table2[String],"x","")

Hi I am getting this error"An argument of function 'MID' has the wrong data type or has an invalid value."

 

while using MID function

Re: how to fetch string from paragraph

I think you need to read the documentation on these functions more closely. 

 

SEARCH

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee634235.aspx

 

You only need 2 parameters, the text to find and where to find it. The last two are optional, where to start (number) and what to return if not found.

 

MID

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee634548.aspx

 

You need three parameters, the text you want to grab a string from, where to start and how many characters to get

 

 

So, let's say that you want to pull the phrase "DAX is fun" from some text but you don't know where it is located in the text of [Column4]. You would use something along the lines of:

 

Column = MID([Column4],SEARCH("DAX is fun",[Column4]),10)
