Thread: Formula for power query

    Formula for power query

    I have a custom column in power query that I need to check if one of these values 1, 25, 31, 2, 8, 19 is in another column on same row and if True then return a value from another column same row. I currently use this formula " =IF(OR(I2 = {1,25,31,2,8,19} ),M2,"0") " in excel but would like it to be added in power query for 3 different columns that use different sets of values. I have tried modifying the formula to work with power query but it does not recognize the OR part. Would anyone have suggestion on how to make this work. Thanks

    You have to test them all

    if [col_name]=1 or [col_name]=2 or [col_name]=8 or [col_name]=19 or [col_name]=25 or [col_name]=31 then 0 else ""

    or maybe you could use a list to be more Excel-like

    if List.Contains({1, 2, 8, 19, 25, 31}, [col_name]) then 0 else ""

    This worked great, changed to if List.Contains({1,2,8,19,25,31}, [col_name]) then [col_name] else "0". Thanks so much for help.

    if List.Contains({1, 2, 8, 19, 25, 31}, [col_name]) then 0 else ""[/QUOTE]
