I want to do a Like operation in Tableau but in Tableau 10.2, Like operation is not present.
1)I am taking a data set for "a% like operation in SQL"
|BC I - 123456|
|BC I- 1|
In the above data set , those string pattern which starts with "BC I-" will be treated as true and other will be treated as false. The underlined and bold ones is true according to my dataset.
As per my logic, I have used this logic :
"IF STARTSWITH(lower([Name1]),'BC I-') THEN 1
ELSEIF STARTSWITH(lower([Name1]),'BC I-') AND FINDNTH([Name1]," ",2)=6 THEN 1
ELSE 0 END"
But this above code have complexity , if there is any space,special characters,characters after 'BC I-' , then it is treated false.
I have to use findnth function to take space but it is not feasible to do like this for all space,special characters and characters
Can you please share a regex pattern or any better methods . So if there any space,special characters,characters after 'BC I-' ,it will return true else false.
