## Reduce numbers to a limit

Hi,

Please can you tell me how to elegantly limit a number to a specified maximum number (i.e. without using an if function?) I'm trying to convert a count function to a 0/1 flag function. For example the following converisons should take place:

0 -> 0

1 -> 1

6 -> 1

2-> 1

9-> 1

Thanks,

CM

Hello @CloudMonkey

If your first number is called 'value' then something like this would do it.

`IF ( value = 0, 0, 1 )`

Hi @CloudMonkey,

Normally, for your requirement, we will use if function to achieve that.

You also could create the conditional custom column in query editor.
