Conditional Formatting only working on half a visual

Hello, I was hoping someone could help me please.


I have a date column , that is made from this : 

DATES = IF(ISBLANK(Table1[Due Date(Task)]) , Table1[Due Date(Task2)], Table1[Due Date(Task)])
That works fine and gives me the dates I want. However, conditonal formatting is doing something very strange. 
Their are 2 sets of records in Table1 that have been appended together. Record1 and Record2. The formatting is working fine for Record 2, but for Record 1 its showing different colours. 
These are the incorrect ones(Record1)
And this is the format:
Due_Status_action = IF('Table1'[DATES]<TODAY() , "Overdue" ,
IF(('Table1'[DATES] -7)<TODAY() , "Due In One Week Or Less" ,
If(('Table1'[DATES]-14)<TODAY() , "Due in 1-2 Weeks" ,
And this is the colours:
Status_Colours = IF('Table1'[Due_Status_action] = "Overdue" , 1,
IF('Table1'[Due_Status_action] = "Due In One Week Or Less" , 2,
If('Table1'[Due_Status_action] = "Due in 1-2 Weeks" , 3,


 And then this is the colour:


Green seems to work but nothing else?


Any help would be much appreciated


Thank you

Hi @Pricey79,

Any update on this? Can you please share a pbix or some dummy data that keep the raw data structure with expected results? It should help us clarify your scenario and test to coding formula.

Hi @Pricey79 

Can you please check the date column type before combined
Should be Date format only in both the table (not date time)

If solved, mark as solution

@PijushRoy  Thank you for taking the time to reply

I've changed the date format and now I get this?





Can you please rebuild the table from scratch and measure. I hope error for, same column as per datatype is already used in DAX, better to copy the dax and power query step and rebuild the table.
