Multiple IF statements in DAX

Creating a new Column or Change original - I am trying to Divide a Value in a Column based on the Value's Name. I have multiple NAMEs and VALUEs to change. I am unable to add multiple IF statements. Also if the NAME is not defined how do I pass the original Value to the new column?

 

Column = IF('DSR'[Name]="CureTimeValue",[VALUE]/10)
 
Your help is much appreciated!

You could specify another IF() function in the ResultFalse (aka else) parameter. The last IF() would return the original value. See: IF – DAX Guide For example 

Column = IF('DSR'[Name]="CureTimeValue",[VALUE]/10, 
             IF('DSR'[Name]="SomethingelseValue",[VALUE]/15,
                  [Value]
               )
           )

 Another, maybe better option is Switch() SWITCH – DAX Guide. Example:

Column = SWITCH('DSR'[Name],
                "CureTimeValue",[VALUE]/10,
                "SomethingelseValue",[Value]/15,
                [Value]
          )

Hi @JacksonMaui 

best is to have all names vs the related value in a lookup (dimension) table. The easiest and most efficient way to proceed after that is to create a one to many relationship. The rest wiuld be a piece of cake.
