PowerBI DAX If function with time

I am trying to categorise my column based on time as shown below. But my formula is returning an error.

Not quite sure whether using the timevalue function in this formula.

 

=if [Time] >= timevalue(06:00) and [Time]< timevalue (14:00) then "Morning"
else if[Time]>= timevalue(14:00) and [Time]< timevalue(22:00) then"Afternoon"
else if "Night"

Hi @spmabaso 

 

if you are looking for DAX function try this.

Measure = 
SWITCH( 
    TRUE(),
    'Table'[Time] >= TIMEVALUE( "06:00" ) && 'Table'[Time] < TIMEVALUE( "14:00" ), "Morning",
    'Table'[Time] >= TIMEVALUE( "14:00" ) && 'Table'[Time] < TIMEVALUE( "22:00" ), "Afternoon",
    "Night"
)

in Power Query try this

= if [Time] >= #time( 6, 0, 0 ) and [Time] < #time( 14, 0, 0 ) then "Morning" else if [Time] >= #time( 14, 0, 0 ) and [Time] < #time( 22, 0, 0 ) then "Afternoon" else "Night"
