DAX case if else from separate columns

Hi,

Trying to use switch using conditions from separate columns but it's not working:

 

Category = SWITCH (
    TRUE(),
    (CONTAINSSTRING('vw_CAP_PreAudit_5Yrs_PN_BEF'[MAT], "07"),"Pole",
    'vw_CAP_PreAudit_5Yrs_PN_BEF'[Work Type Code],"HNA","Vegetation",
    "Non-Pole",
    )
 
Basically if CONTAINSSTRING('vw_CAP_PreAudit_5Yrs_PN_BEF'[MAT], "07"),"Pole", or  'vw_CAP_PreAudit_5Yrs_PN_BEF'[Work Type Code],"HNA","Vegetation", else it = " Non-Pole".
 
Any suggestions?  Thanks in advance!
