# Month and Actual Goal

Options

Hello all looking to make a case statement, I could be using the wrong one. I want to have a Beast mode that states when a specific month then it states what the goal is, picture below.

Why are you including the THEN '12' or THEN '9' clauses? This isn't valid syntax. You can only have one then clause for each where clause.

If you're wanting to combine both values together you can use CONCAT:

```CASE WHEN MONTH(`Date`) IN (10,1,2) THEN CONCAT(`Actual Goal`, ' 12')
WHEN MONTH(`Date`) IN (11,12) THEN CONCAT(`Actual Goal`, ' 9')
END
```

```CASE WHEN MONTH(`Date`) IN (10,1,2) AND `Actual Goal` < 12 THEN 'Yes'
WHEN MONTH(`Date`) IN (11,12) THEN AND `Actual Goal` < 9 THEN 'Yes'
ELSE 'No'
END
```

@A_Benincasa The formula should work if you remove `THEN `Actual Goal`` from each line. In case statements WHEN identifies which rows to consider and THEN specifies what value to assign to those rows, so the formula will not work if there are multiple THENs for each WHEN.

@GrantSmith Thank you! I need to now add in a section that states, " Was Goal met Y/N" if it is less than those numbers above how would I include that in the beast mode?

The < sign does not work in a beast mode

It should work, what type of error are you experiencing with the beast mode?

@GrantSmith it's stating there is a syntax error, I am thinking it's because it referencing month numbers and not the name, but when I swap it out I get the same error
