Hi everyone,

I'm currently working on a PowerPivot where I'm trying to extract the position of a new line/carriage return in a cell containing text. In Excel, this is fairly straightforward using the CHAR() function, where CHAR(10) = line feed:

=FIND(CHAR(10), <cell with text>)

However, there doesn't seem to be an equivalent to the CHAR() function in DAX. Or at least I haven't found one yet. Am I missing something obvious? Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

SoS

Power Pivot is a reporting tool, so it is not designed for data cleansing. Why don't you use Power Query to do what you need to do during import? Power Query is very powerful at this stuff.
