Nested IF AND statement

Could anyone help me with this? I keep getting this error message


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


Table.AddColumn(#"Added Conditional Column1", "Custom", IF (
AND ( [IncidentsPrevMth]-([NoofIncidentsLast12]/12)>0, [IncidentsPrev2ndMth]-([NoofIncidentsLast12]/12)>0),

hi @PaulaMA ,


try like:

    #"Added Conditional Column1",
    each if  [IncidentsPrevMth]-([NoofIncidentsLast12]/12)>0 and [IncidentsPrev2ndMth]-([NoofIncidentsLast12]/12)>0
    then 1
    else 0

You might want to code custom columns in the GUI custom column editor, this looks like you got it out of advanced editor.


The custom column editor has better syntax support and error messages.

Hi @PaulaMA 


If you are using PQ, you need to change the syntax (you're mixing with DAX):


You should do something similar to this (could be some syntax error with parenthesis because of doing it here):



Table.AddColumn(#"Added Conditional Column1", "Custom", each if ([IncidentsPrevMth]-([NoofIncidentsLast12]/12))>0 and ([IncidentsPrev2ndMth]-([NoofIncidentsLast12]/12))>0 then
1 else 0)



 I mean, if..then..else for the ifs conditions and the keyword "and" to do the AND
