Power Query Switch Function vs If statement

Need help with the correct syntax.  I need to determine based on 3 columns (Year, Years of Service, Terminate)  if the years of service fall between the following criteria or the Termnate column has a date.

   if(["#YearsofService"]=>2,"2+ Years" else "Less than 2 Years") else Terminate(has a date) is not null.  This will be for an new column displaying the criteria text.

also tried Switch function.

 [#"#YearsofService"] >=2,"2 + Years" & [#"#YearsofService"] <2, "Less Than 2 Years",
 not isblank([Term Date]), "Termed"

your if statement seems incorrect. You don't use if statements for a switch.

switch ( a = b)
do something here
do something else here
default action

if(["#YearsofService"]=>2,"2+ Years" else "Less than 2 Years") else Terminate(has a date) is not null.

if ((yearsofservice>=2) OR ((2 + years) = ???) or (Terminate != null))

what is the truth table you want to make into a formula?

Thanks for your input, however, I am confused.

I tried a switch statement and was unsuccessful:

  [#"#YearsofService"] >=2,"2 + Years" & [#"#YearsofService"] <2, "Less Than 2 Years",
  not isblank([Term Date]), "Termed"

I need to verify if the Termed field (Date) contains a date if so then return the value of "Termed", else the years of service  > = 2 return the value of "2 + Years"  else,"Less Than 2 Years",

So I need to look at the value of 2 different fields and see if it matches any of the above criteria and return the correct value statement.
