Nested switch statements?

Hi 

I have two conditional columns [FROMDASHBOARDSTATUS] AND [FROMOFFSHORESTATUS]

 

I am trying to apply some logic to different scenarios depending upon the result in either [FROMDASHBOARDSTATUS] or[FROMOFFSHORESTATUS].  The DAX formulae i have is:

 

FINALSTATUS = SWITCH(
       TRUE(),
       'PFUpdates'[FROMDASHBOARDSTATUS]="Approved - Modified",'Panel Firm Updates'[FROMOFFSHORESTATUS],
       'PFUpdates'[FROMDASHBOARDSTATUS]="Approved - Paid in Full",'Panel Firm Updates'[FROMOFFSHORESTATUS],
       'PFUpdates'[FROMDASHBOARDSTATUS]="Unapproved","Awaiting approval in Dashboard",
       'PFUpdates'[FROMDASHBOARDSTATUS]="Disputed","Disputed in Dashboard",
       'PFUpdates'[FROMDASHBOARDSTATUS]="Rejected","Rejected in Dashboard",
       'PFUpdates'[FROMDASHBOARDSTATUS]="Reversal","Reversal in Dashboard",
       'PFUpdates'[FROMDASHBOARDSTATUS]=BLANK(),"No Record",
       'PFUpdates'[FROMDASHBOARDSTATUS]="Unknown",'Panel Firm Updates'[FROMOFFSHORESTATUS])

 

The above works ok apart from one niggling issue (ill explain below) also, i would like to  add one more statement:

'PFUpdates'[FROMOFFSHORESTATUS]="Unknown","Unknown" but i beleive i cant add this because the starting value ( 'PFUpdates'[FROMDASHBOARDSTATUS]) is a different conditional column to the rest.  I thought a nested switch statement would help to add this additional value but i dont know if that is possible?  If anyone can advise that would be great.  

 

Regarding the niggling issue..... the statement above " 'PFUpdates'[FROMDASHBOARDSTATUS]="Approved - Paid in Full",'PFUpdates'[FROMOFFSHORESTATUS]," is basically stating if  'PFUpdates'[FROMDASHBOARDSTATUS] has a value "Approved - Paid in Full" then use the corresponding entry result found in 'PFUpdates'[FROMOFFSHORESTATUS] but... my question is if  'PFUpdates'[FROMOFFSHORESTATUS] is BLANK() then i would like the result to be "Transferred to EDM".  Am i able to modify the statement to also look for the blank values in 'PFUpdates'[FROMOFFSHORESTATUS] after it has looked for "Approved - Paid in Full" in 'PFUpdates'[FROMDASHBOARDSTATUS].

 

Any help greatly appreciated and i hope this is not too confusing?

Re: Nested switch statements?

I think adding IF would be sufficient, also I'm not sure about order of conditions for the Unknown - is it as you expected?

FINALSTATUS =
IF (
    'PFUpdates'[FROMOFFSHORESTATUS] = "Unknown",
    "Unknown",
    SWITCH (
        'PFUpdates'[FROMDASHBOARDSTATUS],
        "Approved - Modified", 'Panel Firm Updates'[FROMOFFSHORESTATUS],
        "Approved - Paid in Full", IF (
            ISBLANK ( 'Panel Firm Updates'[FROMOFFSHORESTATUS] ),
            "Transferred to EDM",
            'Panel Firm Updates'[FROMOFFSHORESTATUS]
        ),
        "Unapproved", "Awaiting approval in Dashboard",
        "Disputed", "Disputed in Dashboard",
        "Rejected", "Rejected in Dashboard",
        "Reversal", "Reversal in Dashboard",
        BLANK (), "No Record",
        "Unknown", 'Panel Firm Updates'[FROMOFFSHORESTATUS]
    )
)
