Hi @Bbrown44,

Could you have tried with AND function?

See below picture and code, it could filter the right row:

Column 2 = IF(AND('Table1'[Value]=2,AND(Table1[Running total]=37,AND([Column]=37,[Date]<>BLANK()))),"True")

Hi @Bbrown44

 

You'd have to use &&, which is the AND operator, instead of &, which is the text concatenation operator.

I am not getting a syntax error here is what I am getting: Syntax: Program service Compliant = IF([sesis_valid_subject] = 1 & [subject_course_linked] = 1 & [language_linked] = 1 & [teacher_count_linked] = 1 & [sped_properties_linked] = 1 & [swd_certified_tchr_linked] = 4 & [lang_certified_tchr_linked] = 1, 1,0) Error statement "DAX comparison operations do not support comparing values of type Integer with values of type Text. Consider using the VALUE or FORMAT function to convert one of the values."

So check that you are comparing numbers with numbers and not mixing types. In any case you will have to use the &&, since I assume you want a  logic AND instead of concatenation. The engine won't necessarily complain about that.
