Help with Access Formula into PowerBI Dax

Hi,

 

I need help with this formula I have from Access which I want to convert it into PowerBI Dax.

Access formula =IIf(Weekday(Date()) Between 2 And 3,Date()-4,Date()-2) 

Numbers for weekdays Sunday =1 Monday =2 Tuesday =3 Wednesday=4 Thursday =5 Friday =6 Saturday =7

Hi @fbostan1 ,

 

Not sure about the Access syntax, but I'll give it a try:

TomsCalculatedColumn = 
IF ( WEEKDAY('date'[Dates] ) = 2 || WEEKDAY('date'[Dates] ) = 3, 'date'[Dates] -4, 'date'[Dates] -2 )

I assumed that "Date()" is a date column.

 

If "Date()" is a function for today's date, then you can use this one:

TomsMeasure = 
IF ( WEEKDAY(TODAY() ) = 2 || WEEKDAY(TODAY() ) = 3, TODAY() -4, TODAY() -2 )

 

Hope this helps!
