PowerQuery - Text before multiple Delimiters

Hi,

 

May I know is there any way I could split text before multiple Delimiters in one function?

Original ColumnDesired Result
1 & 51
50 - 100050
1000/20001000
2000&50002000
5000/100005000

 

Great thanks!

Add a step to extract the text before one of those delimiters, and then modify the code in the formula bar to look like this

 

= Table.TransformColumns(Source, {{"Column1", each Text.Start(_, Text.PositionOfAny(_, {"&", "/", "-"})), type text}})
