## If statement to give value when between two numbers.

Hi everyone,

Can someone help me come up with a formula to give a categorised value for between numbers.

Rating Ranges: 1-5, 6-10, 11-15, 16-20, 21-25
Categories: Insignificant, Minimal, Moderate, Significant, Extreme

Im hoping to come up with something like IF [Rating] between(1,5) then "Insignificant" etc

Sorry I'm not sure I've given you enought context. This formula is to look at another column, "Inherent Risk Rating" that is currently a numerical value which I want to group into the categories mentioned above. What I'm trying to do is add a custon column in power query that takes the Inherent Risk Rating and it groups it depending on what range it is in.

Hi @Anonymous ,

That happens when you're comparing a number against a text  (or vice versa( or using < operator against a text.  What formula did you input?  Have you checked on the PBIX in my other comment?

Hi @Anonymous ,

Try this as a calculated column:

``````Category =
VAR __VAL = 'Table'[Value]
RETURN
SWITCH (
TRUE (),
__VAL <= 5, "Insignificant",
__VAL <= 10, "Minimal",
__VAL <= 15, "Moderate",
__VAL <= 20, "Significant",
__VAL <= 25, "Extreme",
BLANK ()
)``````

That formula is to be done in the Designer and not in Power Query.

If you want it done in Power Query (which has a different syntax and is a separate language) try this.

``````let
VAL = [Inherent Risk Rating]
in
if
VAL <= 5 then "Insignificant" else if
VAL <= 10 then "Minimal" else if
VAL <= 15 then "Moderate" else if
VAL <= 20 then "Significant" else if
VAL <= 25 then "Extreme" else
null``````
