Query Editor vs Dax column

Hello Community - I would like to do this in the query editor, but have the DAX reference as well for learning. 

 

We have Orders.   These orders begin with a prefix, like HS, AR, CO, etc.   

 

The HS and AR orders, below $40k value, are part of a particular sales channel.   I would like the custom column to return the value "QuickShip" if the Order prefix begins with either HS or AR, and if the Order value is equal or less than $40k.

Hi @texmexdragon 

Here's a sample PBIX file with the following data and code.

Based on this sample data

This will do the job

 

 

= if (Text.Start([Order],2) = "HS" or Text.Start([Order],2) = "AR") 

and [Shipped Price] <= 40000 

then "QuickShip" 

else null

 

 

Producing this output
