New conditionnal column in M query

Hello, 

 

In order to add a new conditionnal column from my request, I have written a formula using M language. 

 

I feel everything is ok and it should run well, but I have a "Jeeton Literal" waited error. 

 

The end of my formula is a little bit tricky as I would like to write "balance" when A and B doesn't start the same way.

 

= Table.AddColumn(#"Colonnes renommées1", "ABCDEF", each if ([A] = "1") then "Capitale" or if ([B] = "1") then "Capitale" else if (Text.StartsWith([A], "jj")) then "INTER" and if (Text.StartsWith([B], "jj")) then "INTER" else if (Text.StartsWith([A], "kk")) then "DOM" and if (Text.StartsWith([B], "kk")) then "DOM" else if ([A] <> [B]) then "balance" else null )

Maybe this isn't the good place to post this, but I may need a little help. 

 

Thanks and good evening, 

 

Jj

Re: New conditionnal column in M query

You're nesting weird extra ifs into and/or conditions. Your column's function should read

 

if [A] = "1" or [B] = "1" 
then "Capitale" 
else if Text.StartsWith([A], "jj") and Text.StartsWith([B], "jj")
then "INTER"
else if Text.StartsWith([A], "kk") and Text.StartsWith([B], "kk")
then "DOM"
else if [A] <> [B]
then "balance"
else null
