IF Function Dates

I've written this IF statement which isn't working properly i.e. every non-null Due_At date comes out as 'Swot Week' or and every null Due_At date comes out as 'invalid'.  Most of the non-null Due_At dates should be in the other categories.

 

if [Due_At_Date]<'24/06/2019' and [Due_At_Date]>'16/06/2019' then 'Swot Week'

elseif [Due_At_Date]>'09/06/2019' then '13'

elseif [Due_At_Date]>'02/06/2019' then '12'

elseif [Due_At_Date]>'26/05/2019' then '11'

elseif [Due_At_Date]>'19/05/2019' then '10'

elseif [Due_At_Date]>'12/05/2019' then '9'

elseif [Due_At_Date]>'05/05/2019' then '8'

elseif [Due_At_Date]>'28/04/2019' then '7'

elseif [Due_At_Date]>'21/04/2019' then 'MSB Week 2'

elseif [Due_At_Date]>'14/04/2019' then 'MSB Week 1'

elseif [Due_At_Date]>'07/04/2019' then '6' elseif [Due_At_Date]>'31/03/2019' then '5'

elseif [Due_At_Date]>'24/03/2019' then '4' elseif [Due_At_Date]>'17/03/2019' then '3'

elseif [Due_At_Date]>'10/03/2019' then '2' elseif [Due_At_Date]>'03/03/2019' then '1'

else 'invalid' endif

 

Can anyone see what I'm doing wrong?

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hey!

Your fate strings need to be formatted as yyyy-mm-dd

Hi @DHB 

 

Try converting the dates you have into UTC format instead. Use the DateTime tool and select "dd/MM/yyyy" to convert your dates.

 

Then change the dates in your formula so they have the formate of yyyy-MM-dd (which is also UTC format).

 

Let me know if this helps.
