Date Parameter comparison with existing Date column

Hi, 

I have an issue with comparing input date parameter with existing date column.

Suppose,

 If  DueDate > Dateparameter then "Not Due " 

If  DueDate = Dateparameter  then "Due " 

If  DueDate < Dateparameter then "Over Due ".

 

If I pass the given date parameter 

 If dateparameter is 10/5/2017

 

              

After passing the date parameter getting below result :                 

duedatecolumn   Parameter   Status

26/10/2017                              Notdue

25/10/2017                              Notdue

10/5/2017            10/5/2017     Due

10/4/2017                                 Not Due

10/3/2017                                 Not Due

10/2/2017                                    NotDue

 

But Expecting the below result :

duedatecolumn   Parameter   Status

26/10/2017          10/5/2017    Notdue

25/10/2017          10/5/2017    Notdue

10/5/2017            10/5/2017     Due

10/4/2017           10/5/2017       Over Due

10/3/2017           10/5/2017       Over Due

10/2/2017            10/5/2017       OverDue

 

Based on the given parameter I should get the Status of Due, OverDue and NotDue,

But I am only getting the expected result when  the parameter is equal to duedate.

 

Would Appreciate any help to solve the issue.

Thanks in Advance.

Re: Date Parameter comparison with existing Date column

Hi @avkn4462,

 

In my test, I could get desired Status for each duedatecolumn value. 

 

In your scenario, please check whether the date format stored in duedatecolumn is the same as parameter date. And make sure the data type of duedatecolumn and parameter are both set to date. Also, what is the regional setting in your .pbix file, is it the same as where you stored source data (duedatecolumn).

Since I could not reproduce your issue, it would better you can share your pbix file for further analysis.
