Filtering on-prem SQL data source by date

Consider the following table residing in an on-premise SQL database called DateTable (pulled into powerapps via an on-premise gateway):


Name   DateField

-------   ---------------------------

Item1    2015-01-01 00:00:00

Item2    2017-01-01 00:00:00


When I try to filter this table in Powerapps using the following statement, nothing comes back.

Filter('[dbo].[DateTable]', DateField > DateValue("1/1/2016"))


To debug the issue, I created the following collection:

ClearCollect(DateCollection, {Name: "Item1", DateField: DateValue("1/1/2015")}, {Name: "Item2", DateField: DateValue("1/1/2017")})


The same filter expression applied to this collection works and correctly brings back the one row for 2017:

Filter(DateCollection, DateField > DateValue("1/1/2016"))


Any idea why I can't filter my SQL data source by date?

This issue is unbelievable, I do not understand.


As a work around I have added a calculated column to represent the datetime as a integer.


[TimeInt] AS (datediff(second,'1970-01-01 00:00:00.000',[Time])),

Yeah that was the exact workaround I came up with too. I should have edited my comment to represent this.
