Creating new column based on NULL values in other columns

Hey,

I am trying to create a new column in Power BI based on certain conditions, please see example data below:

 

Goku100_0-1623667106924.png

 

The conditions for the column I want to create is:

IF [Code A] is NULL then take value from [Code B],

IF [Code B] is NULL then take value from [Code C], 

ELSE use value in [Code A]

 

How do I write this up in Power BI correctly?

Thanks

Thanks @amitchandak but its not working properly. The values i am getting in the new column is values only from Column A e.g. If column A is NULL and column B is ABC, the new column output is NULL, however I want the output to be ABC.

 

@Goku100 , is it blank or null string

 

Switch( True(),

[Code A] = "NULL"  && [Code B] = "NULL" , [Code C] ,

[Code A] = "NULL" ,[Code B],

[Code A]

)

 

Can you share a sample pbix after removing sensitive data.
