True and False with unrelated fields

So I know how to use the True and False clause when the values between two fields are equal and when they are not equal but I am unsure if its possible to use the True/False by validating parameters between two columns that have different values.  

 

Example when you look at the below table, I am focused on Column BL "Term Military Civilian Type Descr" and Column BN "Term Military Status"

 

I want to be able to say:

 

Military Rate = IF ('Registrations'[Term Military Civilian Type Descr] is Civilian and ('Registrations'[Term Military Status]) is blank then label as "No Military Rate", else label as "Military Rate".

 

But I dont quite know the DAX for this approach of if its even possible.

Hi @JMWDBA,

 

A little weird. The formula should work. Could you try the formula below to see if it works? Smiley Happy

Military Rate =
IF (
    'Registrations'[Term Military Civilian Type Descr] = "Civilian"
        && (
            ISBLANK ( 'Registrations'[Term Military Status] )
                || 'Registrations'[Term Military Status] = ""
        ),
    "No Military Rate",
    "Military Rate"
)

 

Regards

Hi @JMWDBA,

You should be able to use the formula(DAX) below to create a calculate column in this scenario. Smiley Happy

Military Rate =
IF (
    'Registrations'[Term Military Civilian Type Descr] = "Civilian"
        && ISBLANK ( 'Registrations'[Term Military Status] ),
    "No Military Rate",
    "Military Rate"
)

For some reason it labels all of them as "Military Rate" based on the formula you provided instead of labeling those with Civilian and IS Blank in the Term Military Status Field as "No Military Rate"

That worked like a charm!!! You are heaven-sent!!!Smiley LOL

DAX has AND() and BLANK(), which should be all you need to finish that statement.

 

You might consider doing this in M instead, before your data is loaded. You could use a natural "someList = if condition and condition then result else result" (pseudocode).
