How to avoid repeating the formula?

On various occasions I find myself writing formulas like (simplified version):

eval cat=case(like(CC, "TenantA%"), "ABC", like(CC, "TenantB%"), "BBC", true(), "Enterprise") 

Or mapping the hosts to regions

eval site=case(like(host, "%-au%"), "AWS US", like(host, "%-ac%"), "AWS CA", like(host, "%-ae%"), "AWS EU", true(), "UnKnown") 

 Sometime I use the same mappings across many reports dashboards.

Copy/paste does not cut it. Also sometimes they need to get updated. Any suggestion?

I'd want to try it to be certain, but it sounds like it could be a job for a lookup... with WILDCARD match type defined for some columns:

Did not know about the search macros.

They are very clunky but they do the job!
