Custom Column or Measure?

My very first question, new to Power Bi. I am trying to find the way to create new measure or new column called "NewProduct" using text values from the existing column. So I tried to use simple If statement to select yellow values and name them "ProductA", and select several other blue highlighted values as "ProductB", and ignore the rest of the values in the existing column, but could not find dax expression for it. So what is the best way to use these parameters from my existing column to create new values in a new column. Much apprecite any help.

Hi @Mk60,

 

I'd recommend you to check the SWITCH function.

 

You could do something like this:

In plain text:

Calculated Column = 
SWITCH ( TRUE (), 
[Value] IN { "CC-20b", "CC-50b", "CC-50d", "CC-50n" }, "Product A",
[Value] IN { "83", "888", "98", "CC-75" }, "Product B",
BLANK () )

 

Best Regards,
