Conditional Column

Hi, I'm trying to create a conditonal column and not sure how to do it properly.


For example, I have two columns, one is called OU and the other is called Office. The OU column has values that say "Computers" where as the column "Office" has the value that I want to display, is there any way that I can do somethingl ike:

If Column "OU" value equals "Computers" then "Office" value replaces that?


|     NAME       |       OU      |     Office    |
| Computer 1  | Computers| Austin, TX |
| Computer 2  | Dev Server|      Root     |

Then try


IF(Table(OU) = "Computers", Table(Office), Table(OU))


Does this help?

Hi @Jakuza,


Try creating a new column using an IF condition


IF(Table(OU) = "Computers", Table(Office), [else...])


Are there multiple conditions like "Computers"? If the value is not "Computers", what would you like to display as Office?

The idea is that if it displays something other than "Computers", the value should not change.

Then try


IF(Table(OU) = "Computers", Table(Office), Table(OU))


Does this help?

Thank you!
