## Using Today () for duration of day

Hello, I have setup a formula to generate a category for completion deadlines based on time and date, relative to today.  However, using Today () in the formula appears to be keying off of today at midnight (mm/dd/yyyy 00:00:00).  Therefore, anything later than midnight today is showing up in the formula category beyond today.

`Suspense Category = IF('Main Working List'[Due to Requestor]=TODAY(),"Due Today",if('Main Working List'[Due to Requestor]<NOW(),"Overdue",if('Main Working List'[Due to Requestor]>NOW(),"Due This Week",BLANK())))`

Here is a picture of my results.  As you can see, items schedule through today are coming up as Due This Week (which is true), but they're also due today.

Any ideas?  Do I need to add an additional IF clause that is >=Today()+1 somewhere?

Thank you @ChrisMendoza @rajendran and @Anonymous for your replies.  I think I found another solution.  I modified the formula to read [Due to Requestor].[Date] = Today().  Adding the .[Date] appears to have forced the formula to render the correct results.

Hey @dmouser

You can cast both your column and TODAY as dates to do your comparison. See picture:

Hope this helps,

If I understood your issue it is because TODAY( ) returns 8/7/2018 12:00:00 AM, correct?

You could try something like:

`Column = DATE(YEAR(TODAY()),MONTH(TODAY()),DAY(TODAY()))&" "&TIME(23,59,59)`

Then change the Data type to Date/Time and it should return 8/7/2018 11:59:59 PM.

Hi @dmouser

Remember that Today () returns datetime value with the time "12:00:00 AM" always. Thats why its not matching any records with time beyond 12 am.  @Anonymous solution will work for you.
