## Re: Create Non Numeric (String) measure using IF and ELSE condition

Hi @Diledre,

You can simply add "min" or "max" to the column. Please refer to the snapshot below. BTW, a measure needs the context in the visual.

```MeasureName =
IF ( MIN ( Table1[ColumnA] ) = "ABCD", "LARGE", "SMALL" )```

## Re: Create Non Numeric (String) measure using IF and ELSE condition

A table cannot be equal to a text value. In DAX, you cannot say TableA="ABCD". If you want a cell value to be equal to that, you have to mention the column name, and also filter the rows to get to the row that you want. Or alternatively, you have to use functions that search the entire column, such as Contains.

Sorry it should have been  MeasureName = If(Table(ColumnA)= "ABCD", "LARGE", "SMALL")
