Date Comparison

Hi

 

This might sound silly but I'm not able to get around this problem.

 

= If (StartDate > Today()) then "Hello" Else "Bye"

 

 

Now() / Today () function just doesn't work

 

Thanks for the hepl!

Try with this

 

if [Calendar] > DateTime.Date(DateTime.LocalNow()) then "Hello" else "Bye" )

The Dax code should be:

 

NameDaxCode= If (StartDate > Today(),"Hello","Bye")

Thanks @Vvelarde I've tried this 

 

Error: Expression error: The name 'If' wasn't recognized. Make sure it's spelled correctly.

In Query Editor, capitilaization matters. Use if instead of If in your original statement.

Here is more information on IF http://www.excelguru.ca/blog/2014/08/27/the-if-function-in-power-query/
