SWITCH(TRUE(), [Due Date]<TODAY() && [status] <> "Completed", "Stalled", [due date] >= TODAY() && [due date] <= TODAY()+1 && [status] <> "Completed", "At Risk", "On Track")

Hi @ariamwengel ,

 

M code(Note "if", "then", "else if", "and" are lowercase.):

=if [Due Date]<DateTime.LocalNow() and[STATUS] <> "Completed" then "Stalled" else if [due date] >= DateTime.LocalNow() and [due date] <= DateTime.LocalNow()+1 and [status] <> "Completed" then "At Risk" else "On Track"

@ariamwengel Seems like you are trying to use DAX in Power Query. Power Query uses "M" code, not DAX. So, try creating that column as a DAX column in Desktop instead of in Power Query Editor.

DAX is easy, CALCULATE makes DAX hard...

Hi Greg, Would it be possible to write an if statement based on the formula? Like i said forgive me😊

Thanks Greg. I will do that.
