Embedding a Case in advanced editor

Hi all,

 

I am trying to modify the below M code to also handle a case where if a column "PrevClose" is True then it will be displayed regardless of what VarToday is.

 

 

    #"Filtered Rows" = Table.SelectRows(
            #"Removed Columns", 
            let
                varToday = DateTime.Date(DateTime.LocalNow()),
                varLastDay = if Date.DayOfWeek(varToday) <= 2 then Date.AddDays(varToday, 3) else 
                if Date.DayOfWeek(varToday) >= 3 then Date.AddDays(varToday, 5) else 
                Date.AddDays(varToday, 1)
            in
            each [StartDate] <= varLastDay 
            ),

 

 

 

My first though would be to add an OR statement like the below, but it is not behaving as expected.

 

 

 each [StartDate] <= varLastDay or [PrevClose] ="True"

 

 

 The end goal of this is to display all jobs due to begin within the next 3 days, including jobs starting at any point in the future if the PrevClose is True.

If anyone else is curious, the way i accomplished this is by adding a custom conditional column where PrevClose being True is equal to 1, and then inserting the OR statement like below; 

    #"Filtered Rows" = Table.SelectRows(
            #"Added Conditional Column", 
            let
                varToday = DateTime.Date(DateTime.LocalNow()),
                varLastDay = if Date.DayOfWeek(varToday) <= 2 then Date.AddDays(varToday, 3) else if Date.DayOfWeek(varToday) >= 3 then Date.AddDays(varToday, 5) else Date.AddDays(varToday, 1)
            in
            each [StartDate] <= varLastDay or [Custom] = 1),
