Display distinct values with multiple OR filters

Hello!

 

I would like to consult to you this problem --- so I have the an ID, name, Col1, Col2, and Col3 columns..

 

I would like to display the distinct ID and name column into a table with (col1>=5 and col1<10) OR  (col2>=5 and col2<15) OR  (col3>=5 and col3<15) filters.

 

i created a calculated column like this, to serve as my filter..

 

ColumnFilter = SWITCH(TRUE(),
Query1[col1] >=5 && Query1[col1] < 10, ">=5 & <10" ,
Query1[col2] >=5 && Query1[col2] < 15, ">=5 & <15" ,
Query1[col3] >=5 && Query1[col3] < 15, ">=5 & <15"
)

 

but i am not sure if the SWITCH function functions like an OR operator.

 

I am also not sure how to apply this and get the distinct values in my ID column.

 

So basically i need to get the distinct ID values passed with any of the filters.

 

 

Thank you in advance!
