## Implement CASE statement just like TSQL in PowerBI

Hello,

Is there a way to implement below case statement as a measure or a new column in powerBI

Result = case when AVG_USER_ACTIVE < 10 and PercentUsage < 20.00 and Total > 180 then 1

else 0

end

I have looked into switch and IF but getting syntax error.

Thanks,

Kin

Maybe I haven't understood but uou can use a simple if :

result = if AVG_USER_ACTIVE < 10 and PercentUsage < 20.00 and Total > 180 then 1 else 0

And you can nest them :

result = if 1=1 and 1<>2 then

if 1<2 then 1 else 0

else 0

Use parenthesis to priorize and clarify.

Result = if(AVG_USER_ACTIVE < 10,if (PercentUsage < 20.00,if (Total > 180,1,0)),0)

Hope this helps

Thanks,

Thanks ! I created a custom column with what you suggested and now its working.

Just a note for future readers: You cannot create a measure as I thought I could initially and hence this question.

You can create a Measure or a Calculated Column with that logic. You just need to write it in DAX.

In DAX, IF() is a function and logical operators are && (AND) and || (OR).

(there are also AND() / OR() functions but it is less readable)

Here is the syntax :

= IF([AVG_USER_ACTIVE] < 10 && [PercentUsage] < 20.00 && [Total] > 180 ; 1 ; 0)

Notice the brackets [] to reference a Column or another Measure.

You can nest IF() functions in second and third parameters

In DAX, you also have the SWITCH function if you want different results with different inputs.
