Report Builder Data Set Query Designer Date Filter Expression

Hi,

 

In the report builder I am using the Query Designer to build tables. But I can't figure out the "filter expression" to show anything created after 5/1/2020. I've tried normal DAX expressions but I keep getting errors(I'm new at them so I could have gotten them wrong). I have been using "Contains" under the field "Operator" and tried using excel forumals <5/1/2020. Im just not getting it right. Any help would be appreciated.

 

Side question. Is there a DAX expression tool maker?

 

Thanks,

Jeremy

Contains is not correct. It will be looking for the literal text "<5/1/2020" in your date column.

 

If you use the "Range (Exclusive)" operator and then just pick a start date it will produce a query that returns everything after the specified date.

Not really, the query builder is the closest tool that does this.
