Split Separator: Number of Characters?

Hello, 

 

Is it possible to write a split expression that will separate based on the number of characters?  My output field has a character limit, but no limit of fields I can write to.  

Split function 

 

Thank you!

Hi @Stemmons_PowerU ,

The Output is too large for one field.  Both in SharePoint and my SQL database, there are character limits.  I'd like to "Split" the output into 4 or 5 fields (in this scenario, I could name them Base64_01, Base64_02, Base64_03, Base64_04...Then join them in a calculated field in PowerBI to display the Base64 output) . 

I don't know the syntax to use the Split function to utilize character numbers, rather than a specific character.

Hi @Stemmons_PowerU ,

Thank you for the quick response.  Do you know of a different way to separate an output like that into 3-4 fields? 

Hi @Stemmons_PowerU ,
