Calculate "days from now until" a date field, where sometimes the date will be blank

I'm trying to create a custom column called [Days Until Interview] in a table called 'Field Tracker' to tell me how many days from now until the date in a specific column called [Interview Date], but only where that date is today or in the future (I'm not interested where the date is in the past). The [Interview Date] column will not always be populated though. I would like the new column [Days Until Interview] to be null where the [Interview Date] is either not populated, or is in the past.


My logic would be for something like this:


In the 'Field Tracker' table, create a new custom column called [Days Until Interview]. If the [Interview Date] field is today or in the future, then how many days from now until then (0 in the case of where it's today's date) otherwise where the [Interview Date] field is blank or is in the past, show the result as null



Thanks for any help!

Hi @OobuJoobu one of solution is to create calculaled column Days Until Interview (adjust your table name).

Create calendar table Date and connect it, in matrix use Date column from Date table and you will see only future days as shown on picture below.

Days Until Interview =
VAR _today=TODAY()
VAR _diff=DATEDIFF(_today,Sheet1[Interview Date],DAY)
VAR _result=
RETURN _result

You can use

Days Until Interview =
IF (
    'Field Tracker'[Interview Date] >= TODAY (),
    DATEDIFF ( TODAY (), 'Field Tracker'[Interview Date], DAY )
