## IF and SELECTEDVALUE with multiple conditions

Dear experts,

I have the following issue.
I have a slicer with several elements. When 2 specific elements are selected, I want a specific calculation and if they are not, I want another one.

I'm trying:

``````IF(
SELECTEDVALUE(G_L Entry'[BU]) = "B2B"||
SELECTEDVALUE(G_L Entry'[BU]) = "B2I";
[Revenue] * [ExchRateCurrency];
"" )``````

Another way that it's not working either:

``````IF(
OR(
SELECTEDVALUE(G_L Entry'[BU]) = "B2B";
SELECTEDVALUE(G_L Entry'[BU]) = "B2I");
[Revenue] * [ExchRateCurrency];
"" )``````

Sorry i was abit to quick there! 🙂

``````IF(
AND(
FIRSTNONBLANK(G_L Entry'[BU];G_L Entry'[BU]) = "B2B" ||
FIRSTNONBLANK(G_L Entry'[BU];G_L Entry'[BU]) = "B2I" ;
LASTNONBLANK(G_L Entry'[BU];G_L Entry'[BU]) = "B2B" ||
LASTNONBLANK(G_L Entry'[BU];G_L Entry'[BU]) = "B2I" ) ;
[Revenue] * [ExchRateCurrency];
"" )``````

While there is more than 1 value in G_L Entry [BU] selectedvalue() will always return blank(). That is why your measure is not working. You need to use FIRSTNONBLANK() and LASTNONBLANK() to find the two values.

``````IF(
AND(
FIRSTNONBLANK(G_L Entry'[BU]) = "B2B" ||
FIRSTNONBLANK(G_L Entry'[BU]) = "B2I" ;
LASTNONBLANK(G_L Entry'[BU]) = "B2B" ||
LASTNONBLANK(G_L Entry'[BU]) = "B2I" ) ;
[Revenue] * [ExchRateCurrency];
"" )``````

@MartynRamsden I am getting blanks when those are selected.

@tex628 Sounds logical. Thanks.
I think that I'm missing someting. I am getting the error "Too few arguments were passes to the FIRSTNONBLANK function. The minimum argument count for the function is 2."

@tex628 Perfect. It works. Thank you so much!

@MartynRamsden Thanks a lot for your help too.

Hi @setis

Both expressions look ok to me.  What result are you seeing?

Have you tried IN?

``````Measure =
IF(
SELECTEDVALUE( G_L Entry'[BU] ) IN { "B2B", "B2I" };
[Revenue] * [ExchRateCurrency];
""
)``````

Best regards,
Martyn
