CASE WHEN with between function in DAX

I used this nested IF function to create a new column based on the Sum Rain mm column.

Column = IF('Weather daily'[Sum Rain mm]<=3,"Dry" ,IF('Weather daily'[Sum Rain mm] > 3 && 'Weather daily'[Sum Rain mm] <= 1,"Rainy Day",IF('Weather daily'[Sum Rain mm]> 10 && 'Weather daily'[Sum Rain mm] <= 50,"Wet Day", IF('Weather daily'[Sum Rain mm] >= 50,"Heavy Rain") )))

Deleting Rows Based on a Table Lookup or CTE

There will be times when you’ll want to delete rows from a table based on data in another table. For example, suppose you want to delete rows from the SalesStaff table for only those salespeople who had no sales in the preceding year. However, the SalesStaff table does not contain this information, but the vSalesPerson view does.

DELETE SalesStaff
    SELECT BusinessEntityID
    FROM Sales.vSalesPerson
    WHERE SalesLastYear = 0
