Generate Status based on multiple column values

I have data in the below format, the only values in the Approval column can be Completed, Not Completed, Not Approved.

Based on this I want to update a "End State" column as below:

If the FirstApproval or SecondApproval column have any value equal to Completed, Not Completed, or Not Approved.

The End State column should be updated accordingly. How can I achieve this using power query? Please suggest.

Hi @SamWhite ,

 

You can add a new custom column in Power Query like this:

if [SecondApproval] = null and [FirstApproval] <> null then [FirstApproval]
else if [SecondApproval] <> null then [SecondApproval]
else "All your approval are belong to us"

Hi @SamWhite ,

 

Try this:

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("dY67DoMwDEV/xcrMkKpTR5S1ogzdUIYUjGIpxVYS+v1NB8RDdLuWz7Fv16l2jr13CeGq4e4ksyRVKcNvCZhxKLmZQ1C22qA3DQZDgNbzhD+84QxbZc0776KhpljIaaBMHE/M/XywNTzGkXoE4x3F5XEtEvnzv+rTvcq1tKwPkrVf", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type nullable text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [ItemName = _t, FirstApproval = _t, SecondApproval = _t]),
    #"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(
        Source, 
        "EndSate", 
        each
            if List.Contains({[FirstApproval]} & {[SecondApproval]}, "Completed") then "Completed"
            else if List.Contains({[FirstApproval]} & {[SecondApproval]}, "Not Completed") then "Not Completed"
            else if List.Contains({[FirstApproval]} & {[SecondApproval]}, "Not Approved") then "Not Approved"
            else null,
        type text
    )
in
    #"Added Custom"
