Check value of 0 in Power Editor

Hi,

 

i use this Query in M for Date-modifying:

 

 

let
    MyDay = Date.Day(DateTime.LocalNow()) - 10
in
    MyDay

 

 

My question here is how can i validate that the value in MyDay is not <=0 ?

Example: The Date is 26.10.2020. When i substract 10 the value is 16.  But when the Date is 06.10.2020 and i substract 10 the value must not be -04.  In this case e need the value 01.

How can i check this with an if-statement?

 

regards

Torsten

Hi @torsten_FO 

 

 

let
    aux_ = Date.Day(DateTime.LocalNow()) -10 
    MyDay =  if aux_ <= 0 then 1 else aux_
in
    MyDay

 

or if you want it in just one line:

let
    MyDay =  if (Date.Day(DateTime.LocalNow()) -10) <= 0 then 1 else Date.Day(DateTime.LocalNow())-10
in
    MyDay
