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 ()
    )

Hi @danextian 

 

Thanks for your help, I'm getting this error

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
