Match Serval Text in Measure

Hi All,

 

Right now, I am using contains function to match the text in "Measure" and show it in "Table". May I know if there is any easy way to acheive the same result ? If possible, is it able to do it in wild match? (I would like to do it in visualization instead of add new column in dataset).

 

My current express in Measure is as follow.

 

Measure = if(CONTAINS(Data,Data[Country],"USA")||CONTAINS(Data,Data[Country],"CANADA"),"AMR",values(Data[Country]))

Hi @KH_Mike ,

 

Try

Measure=
SWITCH (
    MAX ( 'Data'[Country] ),
    "USA", "AMR",
    "CANADA", "AMR",
    MAX ( 'Data'[Country] )
)

or

Measure=
IF (
    MAX ( 'Data'[Country] ) = "USA"
        || MAX ( 'Data'[Country] ) = "CANADA",
    "AMR",
    MAX ( 'Data'[Country] )
)

The MAX function is equivalent to getting the value of the current row, and the MIN function can also achieve the same effect.

@KH_Mike , I think you have to do like, what you are doing

 

 

Measure = if(CONTAINSSTRING(Data,Data[Country],"USA") || CONTAINSSTRING(Data,Data[Country],"CANADA"),"AMR",Data[Country])

Hi @amitchandak ,

 

I want to know if there is any function like Switch in Excel can make it formula short. Also, if I only input "Data[Country]" at the end. It seems can't work  correctly.

Hi @KH_Mike ,

Measure=
SWITCH (
    MAX ( 'Data'[Country] ),
    "USA", "AMR",
    "CANADA", "AMR",
    MAX ( 'Data'[Country] )
)

or

Measure=
IF (
    MAX ( 'Data'[Country] ) = "USA"
        || MAX ( 'Data'[Country] ) = "CANADA",
    "AMR",
    MAX ( 'Data'[Country] )
)
