Calculated column HELP!

Hi All,

I'm trying to create a calculated column based on some specific criteria.

So i have a list of LCV registration numbers and i want to identify which ones still have an mot. So the column should be: vehicles[vehicle_has_MOT). I want to see "1" when the vehicle has the MOT product, and "0" when it doesn't.

MOT is a parent product in the same table, and has the three sub products in a separate column:

Reg        Product        Product Type        Policy Count (we use 1 or 0)  CALC_COLUMN

ABC        MOT            Single Payment     1

ABC        MOT            Monthly Payment  0

ABC        MOT            FOC                       0

I want the CALC_COLUMN to do something like vehicles_[has_MOT]=1

apologies if this is obvious, i'm new to Power BI 🙂

Hi @James__

Can you please try this DAX for calculated column

CAL_COLUMN =
SWITCH(
TRUE(),
'Table (2)'[Product]="MOT" && 'Table (2)'[Product Type]="Single Payment", 1,
0)

Resolver I
`CALC_COLUMN = IF( Product = "MOT", 1, 0 )`

Paste it in the new column.

Reg        Product        Product Type        Policy Count (we use 1 or 0)  CALC_COLUMN

ABC        MOT            Single Payment     1

ABC        MOT            Monthly Payment  0

ABC        MOT            FOC                       0

2nd and 3rd line has product MOT, but why you are showing 0 inplace of 1

Hello @PijushRoy

The MOT has 3 separate products: Single payment, monthly payment and FOC. In the example above, this particular van has a single payment MOT product, and not monthly payment or FOC.

Hope that helps.

Hi there!

You can try this:

IF( Product = "MOT", 1, 0 )

Let me know if that helps!
