Conditional formatting need help

Hi,

 

I have a table below. Can I use the conditional formatting to perform the function:

If Label = I, always Date2 - Date1, if Date2 & Date1 are null then use Date4-Date3.

How to do this?

 

Label Date1Date2Date3Date4
I 1/11/20222/11/2022  
G  5/11/20226/11/2022 
I   1/11/20223/11/2022
G 1/11/20223/11/2022

Hi @JustNewbie ,

 

Please create a new column:

Column = 
SWITCH (
    TRUE (),
    'Table'[Label] = "I"
        && (
            'Table'[Date1] <> BLANK ()
                && 'Table'[Date2] <> BLANK ()
        ), DATEDIFF ( 'Table'[Date1], 'Table'[Date2], DAY ),
    'Table'[Label] = "I"
        && (
            'Table'[Date1] = BLANK ()
                && 'Table'[Date2] = BLANK ()
        ), DATEDIFF ( 'Table'[Date3], 'Table'[Date4], DAY )
)

 

You will get a column like this and I think this is the result you want:

If you have another question, please open another thread. In a post, we'd better only address one issue. This will cpntribute to the efficiency of problem solving.

@JustNewbie , Not sure what is the role of conditional formatting here

 

if([Label] = "I" ,

Switch( True(),

isblank([Date1])  && isblank([Date2]) , [Date2] =[Date1],

[Date4] =[Date3],

blank()), blank())

@amitchandak thank you.

I have another condition.. If either Column A or Column B is blank then give me blank, else give me Column B date subtract Column A date in networkdays...
Thank u..
