Helper III

## Check if results of formula are blank and return another column as result?

I have a formula that goes:

IF (column1 <> BLANK(), LOOKUPVALUE (....), column2)

However that formula can still return blanks, as not all items that are being lookedup have an equivalent in the other table, so I think it's pulling blanks from there instead of using column2.

What I would like to do is to create a formula that basically says:

IF( IF (column1 <> BLANK(), LOOKUPVALUE (....), column2) = BLANK(), column3)

But this merely increases the number of blank values being returned, so this approach isn't working. Is there an equivalent formula that would basically say: If the results of the first part of the statement are still returnting blank results, use column3?

Hi,

Please check the below DAX as it is giving the expected results as per your scenario.

SalfromTable_2 =
IF (
ISBLANK ( Table_1[ID] ),
Table_1[Sal1],
LOOKUPVALUE ( Table_2[Sal2], Table_2[ID], Table_1[ID] )
)

Appreciate a Kudos! ‌‌
