## DAX in SWITCH

Hi Friends,

Need urgent help.

I have a column in DB with numbers,

 Names 1 2 3 4 5

But in UI those numbers are linked to Names likes

1 -AA

2 - BB

3 - CC

4 - DD

5 - EE

I need to show the names in Table visual not the numbers; So in this case i wrote SWITCH function DAX but the result is

 Names Names 1 AA 2,3 3 CC 4 DD 4,5

DAX I used:

Names = SWITCH(Names, 1, "AA", 2,"BB", 3, "CC", 4, "DD", 5, "EE")

How to modify this. ?

can you be more specific about the switch statement. Is it applied to a calculated column or measure? Which column/table is involved in this formula? Whi column/table is used in the slicer? How does the report look like?

I created a calculated coulmn using this formula Names = SWITCH(Table[Names], 1, "AA", 2,"BB", 3, "CC", 4, "DD", 5, "EE")

Resolver I

Here is the correct version of this SWITCH statement...😎

``````Names = SWITCH(
TRUE(),
Table[Names] = 1, "AA",
Table[Names] = 2, "BB",
Table[Names] = 3, "CC",
Table[Names] = 4, "DD",
Table[Names] = 5, "EE"
)``````

I am only ammending the DAX I don't know the specifics of your problem, could you give an example table and then the result you'd expect? Or does this solve your problem or give you a better clue on how to solve it? 😊
