Adding hours to date.

Hello all,

 

What I am trying to accomplish is a text box that shows a new date stemming from hours added onto the date selected.  In excel I was using:

=IF(D81="","",IF(AND(ISNUMBER(D81),F81=""),$C$77+(D81/24),IF(ISNUMBER(F81),$C$77+(F81/24))))

 

Thanks in advance for the assistance.

Re: Adding hours to date.

Hi @Sevendust,

Could you please share a bit more about your scenario?

Do you want the End Date/Time to be equal to selected date (e.g. '10/25/2018 18:30 ') plus actual hours?

If you want the End Date/Time field to be equal to selected date (e.g. '10/25/2018 18:30 ') plus actual hours within your Edit form, I think the DateAdd function could achieve your needs.

I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:14.JPG

Set the Default property of the End Date Data card to following formula:

If(
IsBlank(Actual_x0020_Hours_DataCard2.Update),
Start_x0020_Date_DataCard2.Update,
DateAdd(Start_x0020_Date_DataCard2.Update,Actual_x0020_Hours_DataCard2.Update,Hours)
)

Note: The Start_x0020_Date_DataCard2 represents the Start Date Data card control, the Actual_x0020_Hours_DataCard2 represents the Actual Hours Data card control.

The GIF screenshot as below:Test1.gif

Hi @Sevendust

The DateAdd function sounds like what you're after:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/functions/function-dateadd-datediff

Use it like:

DateAdd(StartDate,Value(ActualHours),Hours)

Hope that helps

This is such a terrific way to help, thank you! However, I do not know why but looking at many of the syntax in these forum posts seems to not working in my new version of PowerApps fx.: If(IsBlank(xxxxxx.Update).....

 

I do not know why but the function does not work - Can you give me a hint as to why although I am using the exact same method as you have in the Gif/your screenshot? Greatly appreciated, thank you!
