## IF + query problem

Hi everyone,

I have tried a lot of previous solutions I have found to this issue but I'm not being able to solve the IF problem

1. Recode birth year into age by 2020 - age :

Age = IF(BYear = Blank(), #Null or blank?#, (2020 - BYear))

The year is in number format, not date.

2.Recode this result into an interval:

IF(Age < 35, "<35 Years", IF(Age < 45, "Between 35 and 45 years",">45"))

(Both cases there something wrong with IF even if variables format are ok )

You can make this on the query editor or adding a column in DAX:

Power Query:groupin

``if  [BYear] = null then null else (2020- [BYear])``

DAX:

``Column = IF('Table'[BYear] = BLANK();BLANK();2020 - 'Table'[BYear])``

Then you can make a group or new column wiht the following syntax:

``Column 2 = SWITCH(TRUE();'Table'[Age] = BLANK();BLANK(); 'Table'[Age] < 35; "<35 Years"; 'Table'[Age] < 45 && 'Table'[Age] > 35; "Between 35 and 45 years";">45")``

Sry for being so late, I haven't been working on this the last week, well I have tried both solutions but there's something wrong, even if the formula it's working, Power Bi warn me about an error in the IF or Switch clause, but the column has the values, which is extremely weird.

What is the error you are getting can you share a print screen?

@Pablo_Quintana , Try like

Age = IF( isblank([BYear]) , blank(), (2020 - [BYear]))

Switch ( True(),
[Age] < 35, "<35 Years",
[Age] < 45, "Between 35 and 45 years"
,">45")
