Custom Column Query

Hi, 

I am having issues for the following. Basically Im trying to pull a live currency rate but the currency is only pulled to todays date. In close I have future dates. I want to have a custom column that if the close date is future date then just use todays date.

Hi @powerbiwork ,

 

You can try to create your custom column as

if [Date]<=Date.From( DateTime.LocalNow())
then [Date] else Date.From( DateTime.LocalNow())

Creating a calculated column is easier.

Column = IF([Date]<=TODAY(),[Date],TODAY())

Hi @powerbiwork ,

I noticed that you forget to add brackets before "else". Please try to add it.

@powerbiwork 

Before you add custom column, please check the format of CloseDate - should be "Date".
