New column if statement

Hi 

I have used the simple if command as below 

Late tasks = if(Tasks[TaskFinishDate] - RELATED(TaskBaselines[TaskBaselineFinishDate]) > 1 , 1 , 0)
does anyone know why is is not working correctly?
regards

Re: New column if statement

It would be similar to

DATEDIFF(<start_date>, <end_date>, <interval>) 

The interval is the units so it would be one of these

- SECOND
- MINUTE
- HOUR
- DAY
- WEEK
- MONTH
- QUARTER
- YEAR

 

Check it here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dax/datediff-function-dax

Re: New column if statement

You will need the Dax DATEDIFF function.  I think you need to pass DAY as the third parameter.

 

I have just noticed that this question is in the Power Query forum but you wrote some DAX.  That's OK but make sure you create the column in the right place.
