How to use Switch function to change integer to text?

Hi all,

 

I have the following situation:

 

2017-08-04 12_45_34-Zillion Insights - Power BI Desktop.png

 

I would like to define number 0 to  On Time, 2 to Delayed... but this SWITCH function doesnt support comparing values of type integer with values of type text...

 

Any suggestions?

 

Many thanks!

Don't put the number in between inverted commas.

 

i.e.

 

Column = SWITCH('Fact WaitingroomInsights'[Time],0,"On Time",2,"Delayed",-4,"Earlier than planned",8,"Other")

 

 

Note:

1) Only put text in between inverted commas.

2) If this doesn't work, make sure your the Time column's data type is Whole Number by going to Edit Queries.
