## Find if posting date is YTD or LYTD, The formula does not work... Hope for help

if [postingDate] >= Date.StartOfYear(Date.From(DateTimeZone.FixedUtcNow()))
then "YTD"
then "LYTD"
else "BLANK"

The result is "BLANK"

Had one formula for this before, but it's gone....

Assuming your year runs from Jan-Dec, can't you just compare the current year to the posting date year?

``````let
Source =
Table.FromColumns({
{#date(2022,12,30),
#date(2023,2,1),
#date(2024,1,10),
#date(2020,1,1),
#date(2022,1,14),
#date(2022,2,10)}
},
type table[postingDate=date]
),
let
#"This Year" = Date.Year(DateTime.FixedLocalNow()),
#"Posting Year" = Date.Year([postingDate])
in
if #"Posting Year" >= #"This Year"  then "YTD"
else if #"This Year" - #"Posting Year" = 1 then "LYTD"
else "BLANK",
type text)
in

Thx again, that worked! ...but i don't know how to make that in the original form... Could You pls..?

I don't understand what you mean. Just use the formula that shows in the #"Added Custom" step when you click on that Applied Step.

Hi @Havard,

This is quite strange... It does show up as LYTD on my side ( do yo umind checking the conditions/formula and the dates format [maybe?]):

Cheers,

John

Hi @Havard,

you can use something like this:

``Table.AddColumn(#"Renamed Columns", "Custom", each let daysDiff = Number.From([postingDate] - Date.StartOfYear(Date.From(DateTimeZone.FixedUtcNow()))), res = if daysDiff >= 0 then "YTD" else if daysDiff > -365 then "LYTD" else "BLANK" in res, type text)``

Please note that future year will be "YTD" in this case:

Cheers,

John
