How to Creata a custom column with IF and LEFT function

Hi all,

tried to create new Custom column like this :

 

IF([SalesOrderOriginCode] = "PHONE", "PHONE",
         IF(Text.Start([InvoiceAddressCity],1)= "A", "LOCAL","EXPORT")
)

 

No syntax error, but after press ok, it says The name IF wasn't recognized. What's wrong ?

 

Thanks

@VoltesDev you didn't even copy my formula,  please read the syntax. IF in lower case. Keep in mind M language is case sensitive, FYI
