Filter on Date-type field in Sharepoint

I have reached my trying limits but the blue wiggly line does not go away when I use something like:

Entry_x0020_for = DateValue(Text(TextBox23.Text,"mm/dd/yyyy")) or any combination. Generally the the error says - left is date and right is text or service limitations. I have not been able to crack this out. I tried use Datepicker control but does not work when the left side value is coming from a SharePoint list as a date. The filtering happens the calculation happens but the wiggly line of death needs to go since the error instills low confidence on the result.


I am reaching a frustration point and any help in solving this issue will be much appreciated.

Hi ManishM,


I tried to Filter function to filter DateTime filed in SharePoint.
I got the same result with you, a blue dot suggestion was shown on the app. But the result was that the function works well when I entered a date in the Text input control.
The code I am using is looks like below:



About the blue dot suggestions, please refer to this documentation, it says that Blue dots are only shown on formulas that operate on delegable data sources. Please check this link for more details:
