how to add a new column based on two condition in existing columns.

Hello,

This question relates to the Power query in Excel.

 

Column "Lost" as shown in screenshot has either dates or blanks. I want to add a new column based on the column "lost" with the following conditions.

1. If there is any date in the column "Lost", the corresponding row in the new column should say "Lost."

2, If there is any cell with no data, the corresponding row in the new column shall say "New."

 

How can I achieve this?

You can eventually use bit more sofisticated formula, which evaluate data type:

Hi @mfaisalk ,

I used simple conditional column. Truth is, it does not consider data types, so it not might be the perfect solution. In case you have only dates or nulls, then  following formula will solve your problem:

Thanks a lot, the first simple will work perfectly....as the data type is  only date. As I have blank cells so, instead of null, I used blank as a condition. see screenshot  apE8dvP
