Hello. Is there a way to remove text dynamically, such as all text up to and including a period (eg. changing hello.people to people). I have values whose first part differs in length (eg. goodbye.people to people), and need to remove the first part each time, preferably with DAX. Thanks! Joel.

If the "divider" is always a period, then this should work as a Calculated Column:

=RIGHT([ColumnWithText], LEN([ColumnWithText])-FIND(".",[ColumnWithText]))
