Column return if column value is 0

I looking for a DAX expression or another way to create a "New Column" that returns the value from "Column 2" if "Column 1" value is 0 and value from

"Column 1" if "Column 2" is 0.

 

Any help would be great!

 

Column 1Column 2 New Column
120 12
043 43
430 43
022 22
056 56
540 54
077 77

Hi,

Try this calculated column formula

=MAX(Data[Column 1],Data[Column 2])

Hope this helps.

@CAT6xx 

Use @az38 's DAX but remove "undefined", because it is text datatype, Column 1 and Column 2 are numerical numbers. I guess you would return an error of variant datatype. 

 

New Column = SWITCH(TRUE(),
[Column 1] = 0, [Column 2],
[Column 2] = 0, [Column 1])

Hi @CAT6xx 

try a simple column

Column = SWITCH(TRUE(),
[Column 1] = 0, [Column 2],
[Column 2] = 0, [Column 1],
"Undefined"
)
