Simple Conditional Column on Today's Date - Power Query

Hi,

I want to add a column using Power Query that shows anything before Todays date = "expired" else "live"

 

I have this code but im getting an error saying 'Expression.SyntaxError: Token Then expected' with the ^ just below the comma after LocalNow()), below. 

 

= Table.AddColumn(#"Added Conditional Column", "Historic", each if [Agreement End Date] <= DateTime.Date(DateTime.LocalNow()), then "Expired" else "Live")

 

I'm quite new to PowerBI and I've tried suggestions from related questions already posted but no joy - how do I fix this and / or is there a better way of doing this?

 

Many thanks,

 

Andy

@Andy1927 , there is addition comma , removed here 

if [Agreement End Date] <= DateTime.Date(DateTime.LocalNow()) then "Expired" else "Live"

 

or

 

= Table.AddColumn(#"Added Conditional Column", "Historic", each if [Agreement End Date] <= DateTime.Date(DateTime.LocalNow()) then "Expired" else "Live")

I have one additional request and I'm not sure if it requires a new separate ticket? I have previously used the data model to create 'date bandings' e.g. 0-6 mths, 7-12 mths, and so on. I would like to do the same in query editor using the Agreement End Date  - is this possible? If so, is there an example I could use?
