Compare full date in Excel



Please, I need compare full date in Excel with the actual full date (Date + Hour), but when I try, don't work, because the date in Excel is a number, and the expression addDays('1899-12-30',int(item()['Date']),'yyyy-MM-dd') doesn't work in this case, because I'm using hour too, not only the date.


For example:

Date in Excel: 10/11/2019 14:00. I need to know if it is before or after now.


Thank you!

Hi  ,


Thank for the asnwer but doesn't work, because I have hours also in the date, then when I will convert to int shows an error, because the number that come of the Excel is for example 4365.219139, so can't to convert to int because is a float.

Hi @Haufe ,


If the number that come of the Excel is a float type data, you could consider converting the current time to a float type data, and compare the float type data of current time with the float type data of excel time.
