You can use the REPLACE transform to replace values within the specified column or columns based on the specified string literal, pattern, or position.

Using Replace Transform

  • From the top toolbar, select the REPLACE icon

  • Expand the menu to see the available options under Replace

  • Select Text or Pattern

It opens the Replace transform menu on the right side panel.

Here you can specify the column(s) to look into, the pattern to find and the replacement string as required.

For Example - Here we are Replacing '$ ' characters from the Items column with '#' character. The preview of the column shows the replacement being made.

Note- You can use Trifacta Patterns and Pattern Clause Position matching to make more complex selections and rules around the replacement.
