## Creating a Column using a Nested Find

Hello all:

I'm trying to create a column where the value will be based off and email domain. The below is what I have, but it keeps throwing an error.

Country = IF (FIND("@Domain1.com",
IF (FIND("@Domain2.com",
IF (FIND("@Domain3.com",

So, if the domain is equal to one of the four then it is Canada otherwise US? Maybe this will work for you:

``````Column =
IF (
CONTAINSSTRING ( 'Table'[Email Address], "@Domain1.com" )
|| CONTAINSSTRING ( 'Table'[Email Address], "@Domain2.com" )
|| CONTAINSSTRING ( 'Table'[Email Address], "@Domain3.com" )
|| CONTAINSSTRING ( 'Table'[Email Address], "@Domain4.com" ),
"Cananda",
"US"
)``````

Hey @PowerBINoob24,
I'm not sure if this is what you're looking for. But you could work with a SWITCH statement. This sets a number of conditions. The first condition that is true is returned. For example:

``````Column =
SWITCH (
TRUE,
CONTAINSSTRING ( 'Table'[Email Address], "@Domain2.com" ), "Cananda",
CONTAINSSTRING ( 'Table'[Email Address], "@Domain3.com" ), "US"
)``````

If the mail column contains '@Domain2.com' then 'Canada', if the column contains '@Domain3.com' then 'US' etc.

That's not quite what I need.  Need to find the four specific domains, not just the first one it finds.

Thanks!  That got it.  What is the purpose of the double pipes at the beginning of the lines?

That's the OR operator.
