Year Diff with Slicer

Hi, 

I have a column that shows the year difference between opening and account and closing the account.  I'd like to make a slicer which has the following options 

SLICER:
<1 year
1-3 years
3-5 years
>5 Years 

Is there a way to create a slicer that could show this?

Hi , 

How about this:

SWITCH (
    TRUE,
    'Query1'[Year Diff] < 1,"<1",
    'Query1'[Year Diff] >= 1 && 'Query1'[Year Diff] <= 3,"1-3",
    'Query1'[Year Diff] >= 4 && 'Query1'[Year Diff] <= 5,"4-5",
    ">5"
)

Hi @KW123 ,

 

I'd suggest you add a new column with the logic above to create the bins you need. 

 

Then use that column in your slicer. 

 

Try to create the column as upstream as possible and as downstream as necessary, meaning add the column in the source if possible. If that does not work do it rather in Power Query as in DAX.

 

Let me know if this helps 🙂

Thank you.  I am not sure how to do that. 

@KW123 ,

 

Create a new column with an if statement where you implement your logic like

if table[YearDifference] < 1 then "<1 year" else

if table[YearDifference] >= 1 and table[YearDifference] < 3 then "1-3 years" else 

if table[YearDifference] >= 3 and table[YearDifference] < 5 then "3-5 years" else

">5 Years "

Note, the code above is just a pseudo code. You have to google the right syntax yourself depending on whether you are using DAX code or Power Query's M.

 

Does this help? 🙂

if ('Query1'[Year Diff] <1,"<1",
if ('Query1'[Year Diff] = 1 || 2 || 3, "1-3",
if ('Query1'[Year Diff] = 4 || 5 ,"4-5",
if ('Query1'[Year Diff] >5, ">5"))))
I have that but I am not sure where to put the ELSE.  It seems as though the DAX works for <1 and 1-3 but it is not producing the 4-5 or >5
