DAX Queries - Next 3 Months

I have a query that I'm trying to resolve.

 

1) What do I need to do to correct this expression? 

Insurance Expiring Next 3 Months? = IF([Insurance Expiry Date]<(DATEADD(TODAY,+3,MONTH),"Yes","No"))

Hi @LYeo87 

Now you want to build a calculated column to return 'Yes' if Insurance Expiry Date < Today +3Month, others return 'No'.

DATEADD() function will return to a table instead of a value, so you can't use today function in it.

You can try my calculated column with Date function as below.

Insurance Expiring Next 3 Months? = IF([Insurance Expiry Date]< DATE(YEAR(TODAY()),MONTH(TODAY())+3,DAY(TODAY())),"Yes","No")

My Sample:

@LYeo87 - Sorry, having trouble following, can you post sample data as text and expected output?
Not really enough information to go on, please first check if your issue is a common issue listed here: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/Before-You-Post-Read-This/ba-p/1116882

Also, please see this post regarding How to Get Your Question Answered Quickly: https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/How-to-Get-Your-Question-Answered-Quickly/ba-p/38490

The most important parts are:
1. Sample data as text, use the table tool in the editing bar
2. Expected output from sample data
3. Explanation in words of how to get from 1. to 2.

 

That said, perhaps this helps. You may find this helpful - https://community.powerbi.com/t5/Community-Blog/To-bleep-With-Time-Intelligence/ba-p/1260000
