# If and or DAX

Hi

Please could you help me to build up a DAX formula with if, and, or:

If [a] = true
and or [c] = true
then = [d]

I wonder is it possible to sum up the total of and [c] rather than showing the result of [d]?
Many thanks.

Sorry for the typo, the question should be:

If [a] = "1"is true
and [e] ="2" or [c] = "3" is true
then to sum up the d value of [e] and [c]

Also, I would like to create a 'if and' formula with three criteria but it has syntax error, please could someone point out the mistake. Many thanks.

Actual Test = iferror(if(and([project]="A", [Unit]="B",[Name]="C"),[Actual]/[Budget],[Actual])),0)

Hi,

AND operator in DAX accepts only two arguments, thus the syntax error. You might want to use "&&" instead:

Rich (BB code):
``If([Project] = "A" && [Unit] = "B" && [Name] = "C")``

The same goes for OR operator if you ever need to use it - it also accepts only two arguments so you need to replace it with "||".

Thank you JustynaMK. Can I use the && in multiple ifs and I got confused with the right brackets and commas:

If([Project]="A" && [Unit]="B" && [Name] = "C"),[Actual]/100, if([Project]="D" && [Unit] = "E" && [Name] = "F"),[Actual]/200, [Actual])

Yes, brackets can usually be a problem I suggest separating your code with "enter" - this one should work:

Rich (BB code):
``````If(
[Project]="A" && [Unit]="B" && [Name] = "C",
[Actual]/100,
If(
[Project]="D" && [Unit] = "E" && [Name] = "F",
[Actual]/200,
[Actual]
)
)``````

Please if I want to mix with && and ||, that is Project = A, or Project = B, and Unit = B, Name = C: is the code below correct please?

Rich (BB code):
``````If(
[Project]="A" || [Project]="B" && [Unit]="B" && [Name] = "C",
[Actual]/100,
If(
[Project]="D" && [Unit] = "E" && [Name] = "F",
[Actual]/200,
[Actual]
)
)​``````
