## Switch function between two values

I need to put some values into buckets.  I believe the switch function is the way to go, but I'm not sure how it works when I need one of the criteria to fall in between two values.  This is what I need my formula to do:

TIME AT FINAL = SWITCH (
TRUE (),
'QA'[AVG TIME AT DESTINATION] <75,"0-75",
'QA'[AVG TIME AT DESTINATION] >75<105,"75-105"

'QA'[AVG TIME AT DESTINATION] >105,">105"
)

The middle part of the formula says that if AVG TIME AT DESTINATION is between 75-105, make the value "75-105".  However, this does not work with the Switch function, at least not how I have it written.  How would I accomplish this?

Two possible ways to do this:

```TIME AT FINAL = SWITCH (
TRUE (),
'QA'[AVG TIME AT DESTINATION] <75,"0-75",
'QA'[AVG TIME AT DESTINATION] >75 && 'QA'[AVG TIME AT DESTINATION]<105,"75-105"
'QA'[AVG TIME AT DESTINATION] >105,">105"
)

or

TIME AT FINAL = SWITCH (
TRUE (),
'QA'[AVG TIME AT DESTINATION] <75,"0-75",
''QA'[AVG TIME AT DESTINATION] >105,">105",
"75-105"
)```

Nice, @Greg_Deckler

For future reference, is the a reason that there needs to be two && in the formula?  Does that have a meaning?

Super User

&& is your logical AND filter construct shorthand. A single & is concatenation. You could have used the AND function as well. || is OR.

I'd suggest you might want to assign a variable here.

TIME AT FINAL =
Var avgtime = QA[AVG TIME AT DESTINATION]
RETURN
SWITCH (
TRUE ()
, avgtime <75,"0-75"
, avgtime >105,">105"
, "75-105"
