New Column: If Column A contains A then divide Column B by 50, if contains B then 25

Hi, I am looking to add a new column that will go through all of the 'Scores' I have and check what type it is. If it is Type A I want to divide the 'Score' by 50 and if it is Type B to divide the 'Score' by 25.

 

Exmaple below:

@DylanBanINT ,

New calculated column:

NewColumn = SWITCH(
               TRUE(),
               [Type] = "A", DIVIDE( [Score], 50, 0 ),
               [Type] = "B", DIVIDE( [Score], 25, 0 ))

This should get you what you asked for.

Hi, it seems putting in the word SWITCH is giving me an error

 

"Expression.Error: The name "SWITCH" wasn't recognized. Make sure it's spelled correctly."
