【DAX】 How to use Switch function to define if each cell contains some specific letter? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi I met a problem in DAX. The function I want to achieve: in the A column, whenever it contains the word "TPT" or word "TFT", then it returns "internal customer" in B column. The rest returns "external customer".

    I know how to do it in SQL, is like update.. where ..like '%TPT%' or .. like '%TFT%'

    But when I added the table to data model and tried to use similar wildcard way in DAX, it didn't work. I have tried *,%,^, all didn't work.

    It would be great helpful if someone could suggest. Thanks in advance.

        Table1[customer] = "*TPT*","Internal customer",
         Table1[customer] = "*TFT*","Internal customer",
        "External customer"

  • Have you tried using CONTAINS?

  • I don't know which is stranger, that you asked this completely off-topic question here in the Expression Design forum, or that someone actually found it here and essayed an answer. Jeez...
