Create Custom Column using PQL IF Statement Logic to Compare A Date to the Current Date

I need a PQL script to create a new column that essentially does the following for each entry

 

If [Expiration Date} is before [Current Date], then return "Expired"

If [Expiration Date} is within 30 days after [Current Date], then return "Expiring"

Else "Active"

I have been playing around with M and DAX languages and can't figure out how to properly return "Expiring" if an entry will become expired in less then 30 days but is still technically Active since it has not expired yet.

Hi @alanphamvistra4 ,

You can follow the below methods to achieve it, please find the details in the attachment.

1. By M query: add a custom column

=if [Expiration Date]<Date.From(DateTime.LocalNow()) then "Expired" 
else if [Expiration Date]>=Date.From(DateTime.LocalNow()) and [Expiration Date]<=Date.AddDays(Date.From(DateTime.LocalNow()),30) then "Expiring" 
else "Active"

2. By DAX: create a calculated column as below to get it

Status = 
SWITCH (
    TRUE (),
    'Table'[Expiration Date] < TODAY (), "Expired",
    'Table'[Expiration Date] >= TODAY ()
        && 'Table'[Expiration Date]
            <= TODAY () + 30, "Expiring",
    "Active"
)
