# If or Switch to filter

Hi,

I'm looking for a formula to do some counting in a column of numbers, but I'm struggling.

I need it to say this.

If data in column "Variance" = <6 leave then as it is, else divide the number by 7 and multiply by 5.

So, if the data in column "Variance" is 3, for example, then it will stay as 3. If it is 48, then it will display 34 (rounded up or down).

I've browsed a lot of similar formulae on this site, but nothing so specific as it will help. I've also seen lots of suggestions for the Switch function, but not sure if it applies here.

Many thanks,

Rich

Hi @RichJW,

You can use either IF either SWITCH:

```Custom =
IF(
[Variance] <= 6,
[Variance],
ROUNDDOWN([Variance] * 5 / 7, 0)
)```
```Custom2 =
SWITCH(
TRUE(),
[Variance]<= 6, [Variance],
ROUNDDOWN([Variance] * 5 / 7,0)
)```

Just create a new column wiht the condition:

`Column = IF(Table[Variance] <= 6, Table[Variance], ROUND(Table[Variance] / 7 * 5))`

That should work for you

= IF(SUM(Table[Variance]) > 6, ROUND(DIVIDE(SUM(Table[Variance]),7) * 5,0), SUM(Table[Variance]))

Hi @SPG, @zoloturu and @aaronwatt.

I tried SPG's first and received an error regarding the minimum argument count in the ROUND function, however I quickly moved onto zoloturu's and that one worked perfectly for me.

I'll try aaronwatt's as well, as it's always nice to have options

Many thanks all,

Cheers,

Rich
