IF statement to categorize date column

I have a column with dates and some of the column have no value. i want to create a table that shows 'Yes' if is not null and 'No' if the column is null. i used this formula IF(ISBLANK('Tablename'[date_column]), "No", "Yes") and also tried if('Tablename'[date_column]=blank(),"No","Yes"). But powerbi claims it cant find the column, i have tried a simple count formula with same column and it worked. Please what am i doing wrong?

Hi @Vizbaby 

Please try in DAX
If('Tablename'[date_column]="null","No","Yes")

OR Try below code in Custom Column in Power Query
= if [date_column] = null then "No" else "Yes"
or 
= if [date_column] = "null" then "No" else "Yes"

Please share screenshot of the error and table column name
Is it Datatype as Date or DateTime or other
