Comparing date to today

I'm trying to filter a table based on the date being after today and a simple status field, but I'm having trouble.

 

ClearCollect(
    colAll, 
    Filter('[table]',end_date>Today(),status="A"  ));

end_date is a date field. If I remove the date comparison, it works, but with the date comparison, I get an emply collection. If I do it manually in Power BI, I can see about 500 filtered records. Is the comparison more complicated than this?

 

Thanks!

Re: Comparing date to today

Hi @kman42 ,

I've made a test but not met the problem as your description.

Could you tell me 

1)what's your data source?

2)what's status's data type?

What's more, the formula"Filter('[table]',end_date>Today(),status="A" )" is eqal to:

  Filter('[table]',end_date>Today() && status="A" )

Please check whether there's item that meet the two requirements.

Re: Comparing date to today

Hi @kman42 

Just to expand on what @v-yutliu-msft says, the data source that you're using plays an important part.

With SharePoint for example, filtering a date field with the > operator results in a non-delegable query. This means that if your source data contains more than the 2000 records (as defined in the non-delegable query limit in the settings of your app), the Filter function may not return accurate results.

If you let us know what data source you're using, we can advise further.
