Creating an IF measure that returns text

Hi I have the following measure that I belive is correct: 

 

Bonus Tier =
IF([Bonus Percentage Measure]>=1.05 && [Bonus Percentage Measure]<1.1, "Tier 1",
IF([Bonus Percentage Measure]>=1.1 & [Bonus Percentage Measure]<1.5, "Tier 2",
IF([Bonus Percentage Measure]>=1.5 && [Bonus Percentage Measure]<1.2, "Tier 3",
IF([Bonus Percentage Measure]>=1.2, "Tier 4"))))
 
However, I keep getting the below error, I'm a little confused because Bonus Percentage Measure is a perntage and I'm not comparing text at all I just want the out put to be text.

Hi @kari1282 ,

You need to use double ampersand '&&' between your logical arguments. A single ampersand simply tries to concatenate text.

I'd also recommend using the SWITCH function in place of your nested IF statements as it makes the code easier to read.

Below is my table:

The following DAX might work for you:

 

Measure = 
    var Bonus_Percentage_Measure = SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[Bonus Percentage Measure])
    var result = 
         SWITCH(
            TRUE(),
            Bonus_Percentage_Measure>=1.05 && Bonus_Percentage_Measure < 1.1 ,"Tier 1",
            Bonus_Percentage_Measure>=1.1 && Bonus_Percentage_Measure < 1.5 , "Tier 2",
            Bonus_Percentage_Measure>=1.5 && Bonus_Percentage_Measure < 2.2 , "Tier 3",
            Bonus_Percentage_Measure >= 2.2 , "Tier 4"
         )
    return result 

 

The final output is shown in the following figure:

I Hope I answered your question.

 

 

Don't forget to give thumbs up and accept this as a solution if it helped you!!!

@Uzi2019  the Bonus Percent Measure is a %

I think the problem is the Bonus Tier the measure I wrote is showing as General. I do not see an option to change the format to text
