## Help with DAX IF statement error

Hi peep's I need some help to see what I have done wrong, I am new to this and I'm still learning DAX.

I am adding a measure to my table to give me an age category for KPI's.

Age Category = if('PBO test 1 - Client Details'[Age]=blank(),blank(),if('PBO test 1 - Client Details'[Age]<18,"16-17",if('PBO test 1 - Client Details'[Age]<20,"18-19",if('PBO test 1 - Client Details'[Age]<22,"20-21",if('PBO test 1 - Client Details'[Age]<24,"22-23",if(‘PBO Client Details’[Age]<25 ”24”,”>25”)))))

Whilst we record the individual ages, the KPI asks for a count of 16-17, 18-19, 20-21, 22-23, 24 and 25.

So the column [Age] is just a list of numbers = for each clients age.

This is what I get

Any help to point me in the right direction gratefully received.

Hi @DemoFour,

With your measure, you could not just use the column ['PBO test 1 - Client Details'[Age]], you could try to convert the 'PBO test 1 - Client Details'[Age] to CALCULATE(SUM('PBO test 1 - Client Details'[Age])) in your formula.

## Re: Help with DAX IF statement error

I got the following to work

But whilst the suggestion you made worked, I could not traslate it into visual. I think I need to do some more work on understanding CALCULATE and SUM to understand them better within BI.

kind regards

Hi @DemoFour ,

And with your second issue, I suggest to you to re-create a topic in the community and you could also refer to below link about CALCULATE:
