Power query to return true false if multiple columns are either or null

0 votes

This is what I'm attempting to do. To determine whether a worker has relocated within the last month, I need a query.

The columns I'm using display state as a two-digit code, such as TX. The information about provincial moves is presented as follows in a single column:

enter image description here

I tried dividing the single column by the delimiter, which would result in the creation of an equal number of new columns. then unsuccessfully attempted to insert a custom column that would return (true/false) if there had been any changes.

I'd be looking for a straightforward power query code that, in the example below, will return any and all modifications as true:

It should return "True" if the two-digit state code changed in any way. and "True" only if the two-digit state codes didn't change.
