I´m trying to use the formula Text.Middle for a custom column, but get an error of expression.

Error
Expression error: the name Text.Middle is not recognized. Make sure it is spelled correctly.

I´ve checked the spelling and theres no issue. What am I doing wrong?

I´ve used other text formulas with no issue whatsoever. For example Text.PositionOf as shown:

    It's likely that you're using an older version of Power Query. Can you share your PQ version? If you installed it as an addin, please upgrade the addin to a more recent release. If it came as part of Excel, you will need to update Excel in order to get an updated version of PQ.
