## DAX IF statement help

I have a basic task that will take our budget status, scope status and schedule status and return an "overall status" based on the color of each of the 3 statuses mentioned above

The 3 statuses can either be Green, yellow, or red

If all 3 statuses are green, then overall status =  Green

If 1 status is yellow, then overall status = Yellow

If 1 status is red, then overall status = Red

^^ I can't quite figure out how to create this using dax, any help will be greatly appreciated!

Dax Function:

Overall Status = IF(OR(OR(Sheet1[Budget status]="Red",Sheet1[Schedule status]="Red"),Sheet1[Scope status]="Red"),"Red",IF(OR(OR(Sheet1[Budget status]="Yellow",Sheet1[Schedule status]="Yellow"),Sheet1[Scope status]="Yellow"),"Yellow","Green"))

Probably best to create a measure that looks at each of the columns and checks if any of them are red, and also create a measure that looks at all of the columns and sees if any of them are yellow. You can then do something like:

OverallStatus = if([redcheck]=TRUE(), "Red",if([yellowcheck]=TRUE(), "Yellow", "Green"))

Just solved something similar, see if this helps:

https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Desktop/Switch-amp-Calculate-Issue/m-p/352890#M158765

```Performance =
VAR Score = (RELATED('Rating-FY17'[FY17 Rating])+RELATED('Rating-FY16'[FY16 Rating]))/2
VAR Rating = SWITCH(
TRUE(),
Score = 5, "Top Performer",
Score >= 4 && Score < 5,"High Performer",
Score >= 3 && Score < 4,"Base Performer",
Score > 1 && Score < 3,"Low Performer",
"N/A"
)
RETURN IF(ISBLANK(RELATED('Rating-FY17'[FY17 Rating])) || ISBLANK(RELATED('Rating-FY16'[FY16 Rating])),"NA```

So, in your case it might be something like:

```Overall Status =
VAR Status1 = Table1[Status]
VAR Status2 = Table2[Status]
VAR Status3 = Table3[Status]

VAR OverallStatus = SWITCH(
TRUE(),
Status1 = "Green" && Status2 = "Green" && Status3="Green", "Green",
Status1
)
RETURN OverallStatus```

Dax Function:

Overall Status = IF(OR(OR(Sheet1[Budget status]="Red",Sheet1[Schedule status]="Red"),Sheet1[Scope status]="Red"),"Red",IF(OR(OR(Sheet1[Budget status]="Yellow",Sheet1[Schedule status]="Yellow"),Sheet1[Scope status]="Yellow"),"Yellow","Green"))

@Greg_Deckler

OverallStatus = Var Status1 = Projects[BudgetStatus]
Var Status2 = Projects[ScopeStatus]
Var Status3 = Projects[ScheduleStatus]

Var OverallStatus = SWITCH(TRUE(),
Status1 = "Green" && Status2 = "Green" && Status3="Green", "Green", Status1)

Return OverallStatus

I tested the above code out with a project that had schedule status as yellow, but it still returned overall status as "Green"
my understanding from the above is that variables status1, status2 and status3 hold a value for whatever color status it is

the bolded part is where i'm confused, is there something i'm missing to tell it to return red or yellow if either of the variables is red or yellow?

Use the Dax function with OR function as given above.

I hope i will work.
