IF Statements For Date and Time

Hello,

I am trying to create an IF statement by date and time to associate a shift letter to(A.B,C,D).

I have an end date column pulling from a table in this format: 10/21/2019 2:00:00 PM.

I would like to assign a shift to this date and time column.

If B shift is 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM, then the example above would be assigned B shift.

I am connected via ODBC and using Power BI.

Any help would be much appreciated.

The syntax is for M query.

 

Open Edit queries, Add column->Custom Column -> Paste your script and rename the column.

Change the Date column from your source to Datetime datatype in Edit queries

 

Add a custom column as below. Adjust the shift timings and conditions accordingly.

 

 

=if Time.Hour([Column1])>=0 and Time.Hour([Column1])<11 then "A" else if Time.Hour([Column1]) >=12 and Time.Hour([Column1]) < 18 then "B" else "C"

 

 

I tested the above code with sample data and it works.

But do change the condition as per your need.

Here is the forumla with my column inserted:

 

Shift = if Time.Hour([AM_PRODUCTION_RESULT[END_DATE_TIME])>=0 and Time.Hour([AM_PRODUCTION_RESULT[END_DATE_TIME])<11 then "A" else if Time.Hour([AM_PRODUCTION_RESULT[END_DATE_TIME]) >=12 and Time.Hour([AM_PRODUCTION_RESULT[END_DATE_TIME]) < 18 then "B" else "C"

Re: IF Statements For Date and Time

Going to add another level of complexity here, How about bringing in Days of the week? 

 

Example:

 

 Sunday through Tuesday 6:00 am-6:00 pm and Wednesday 6:00 am-Noon = A shift

Add "Date.DayOfWeek([Column1])" to the condition. It will return 0 for Monday,1 for Tuesday and so on..
