Multiple IFs & Ands

Hi Everyone

I am trying to create a conditional column that checks a number of criteria and, depending on the answer to those queries, gives a result.

To give some info, I have a table containing [column A] and [column B]. I need to ask these if statements:

If [column A] equals "1" or "2" or "3" or "4" and [column B] equals "X" or "Y" I want it to return "OK"

If [column A] equals "1" or "2" or "3" or "4" and [column B] does not equal "X" or "Y" I want it to return "Check".

If [column A] does not equal "1" or "2" or "3" or "4" and [column B] does not equal "X" or "Y" I want it to return "OK"

If [column A] does not equal "1" or "2" or "3" or "4" and [column b] equals "X", or "Y" I want it to return "Check"

I have tried various IF statements with a mixture of && or || but none seem to yield the desired result. I have two questions:

1) Is it possible?

2) How is the best way to do it, without creating other conditional columns before hand?

You could use " in {1,2,3,4} " instead of using multiple equals.
For example:

``````column = IF(
([columnA] in {1,2,3,4}&&[columnB] in {"x","y"}) || ([columnA] not in {1,2,3,4}&&[columnB] not in {"x","y"}),
"OK",
if(
([columnA] in {1,2,3,4}&&[columnB] not in {"x","y"}) || ([columnA] not in {1,2,3,4}&&[columnB] in {"x","y"}),
"check") )``````

Or you could use switch() function.

Switch(true(), conditon, value, conditon, value)

The in function worked although, not in wasn't a supported operator. Instead, I used

column = IF(
([columnA] in {1,2,3,4}&&[columnB] in {"x","y"}) || not([columnA] in {1,2,3,4}not[columnB] in {"x","y"}),
"OK",
if(
([columnA] in {1,2,3,4}&&not[columnB] in {"x","y"}) || not([columnA] in {1,2,3,4}&&[columnB] in {"x","y"}),
"check") )

Looks like it has had the desired effect though, thanks for your support.

Can you share what logic you have used in Power BI which is not working?

Thanks,

I've tried a few but to give you an idea, I have tried:

• =IF( [column A] = "1" && [column B] ="X" || [column A] ="1" && [column B] = "Y" || [column A] = "2" && [column B] = "X" || [column A] = "2" && [column B] = "Y" and so on until all the needed statements have been entered...

• =IF([column A] = "1" || [column A] = "2" || [column A] = "3" || [column A] = "4" && [column B] = "X" || [column B] = "Y" etc...

I don't know if it helps but, values 1, 2, 3 and 4 are a variation of the same value. so 1 is "1-a", 2 is "1-b", 3 is "1-c", 3 is "1-d". Values "X" and "Y" are actual X is blank and Y is "NONE"
