Why power apps has a problem filtering records by date

Hi, in my case I want take from database items and I write this formula:

 

 

 

 

Sort(
Filter(
        TABLE,
        ID = "a",
        QTY > 0,
        STATUS = 1,
        SCHED = "plan",
        PHYSQ > 0,
        ITEM = DataCardValue3.Text,
        DATE >= Today()
)
,DATE)

 

 

 

 

and in that case, the formula doesn't work, only power apps keep loading something. But when I delete DATE >= Today() from the formula it works and gives me some records.

When I write such a condition, it returns these dates in the gallery to me anyway:

Date <> DateValue("01/01/1900 00:00")

Please help @timl @WarrenBelz @BCLS776 @Pstork1 @RandyHayes

unfortunately, I can't interfere with the database and create fields there.

When I want to filter greater or smaller dates than 1900/01/01 then I get an issue:

We cannot apply operator < to types DateTimeZone and DateTime, so how can i limit the number of dates?

If you can't change the database then there is no way to filter dates in SQL using a delegable formula.  If that is the case then the best workaround is to use an external filter that is non-delegable and an internal filter that is delegable that will return fewer than 2000 records.  Something like this

Sort(
Filter(Filter(
        TABLE,
        ID = "a",
        QTY > 0,
        STATUS = 1,
        SCHED = "plan",
        PHYSQ > 0,
        ITEM = DataCardValue3.Text),
        Value(Text(Date,"yyyymmdd")) >= Value(Text(Today(),"yyyymmdd"))
)
,DATE)

I get delegation warning where the formula not working correctly on large data sets.

There is no way to get rid of the delegation warning on the date filter.  But since the inner filter IS delegable the whole thing will work as long as the inner filter returns less than 2,000 records.  There is no other way to do it.

okay, so thank you for informations 🙂

Thank you very much!! You help me solved my problem!

Pstork1, your response to this forum was a great help in removing delegation issue within my app. If anyone is looking to filter a large SQL data set by the current date then follow Pstork1's instructions. Create the number value as a column in your SQL table and use this formula to filter the data set on that column. Additionally, use this formula to patch the SQL table. Super helpful Pstork1, thanks!

Hi there, great info, but still puzzled...

In our case following filter didn't return any record:
ClearCollect(myCollection, Filter(Schedules,

Date = DateAdd(DateValue(txt_firstMondayOfWeek.Text),7)));

 

While this one worked perfectly:

 

ClearCollect(myCollection, Filter(Schedules, 

Date < DateAdd(DateValue(txt_firstMondayOfWeek.Text),8) &&

Date > DateAdd(DateValue(txt_firstMondayOfWeek.Text),6)));

 

How do you explain this? Is it also related to SQL Server not supporting Direct Date Filters?

Thanks

I share with you a detail that helped me filter dates from SQL tables in PowerApps.
Use the function

AddColumns(sqltable;"new_column";DateValue(datecolumn))
With this, it stopped showing me an error and it also didn't show me a delegation warning.
