Too many arguments were passed to the AND function. The maximum argument count for the function is 2

Hi,

 

Can anyone help. I'm trying to get this formula to run and I keep getting this error message:

 

Too many arguments were passed to the DATESBETWEEN function. The maximum argument count for the function is 3.

 

The formula is:

c_ARGB = IF([ARG A]="",0,
IF([ARG D]="",CALCULATE(SUM(DateTable[WORKDAY]),DATESBETWEEN(DateTable[Date],'IC CMS List'[ARG A],TODAY(),CALCULATE(SUM(DateTable[WORKDAY]),DATESBETWEEN(DateTable[Date],'IC CMS List'[ARG A],'IC CMS List'[ARG D]))))))

 

Thanks!

I believe you want:

 

c_ARGB = 
IF(
	[ARG A]="",
	0,
	IF(
		[ARG D]="",
		CALCULATE(
			SUM(DateTable[WORKDAY]),
			DATESBETWEEN(
				DateTable[Date],
				'IC CMS List'[ARG A],
				TODAY()
			)
		),
		CALCULATE(
			SUM(DateTable[WORKDAY]),
			DATESBETWEEN(
				DateTable[Date],
				'IC CMS List'[ARG A],
				'IC CMS List'[ARG D]
			)
		)
	)
)

OMG Greg, Thank you!!! I've been banging my head against a wall regarding this solution for a month now. 

 

I noticed that in my original formula everything was on the same line. However, I cannot find out where to go so that I can enter the forumla on separate lines. The area that I insert my formulas doesn't allow me to enter formulas on seperate lines.

 

As a result, I tried to modify my formula to match yours but still on one line and I still got an error message. 

 

What was I doing wrong? and where can I go to practice so that I can get better? 

 

Alt-Enter is your friend. That sends you to a new line within the DAX editing window. Or you can just copy and paste my formula.
