DateAdd Function

I’m struggling to understand why I can not add the two columns together to get a response date for each row. I don’t want to have to establish a relationship between mail date to perform the calculation because that creates issues when I want to review the summary data by the date column that I’m trying to create. I hope this explanation makes sense. I’ve read almost every blog on non contiguous dates…it’s not clicking for me.

Hi @dbrelsford, we aim to consistently improve the topics being posted on the forum to help you in getting a strong solution faster. While waiting for a response, here are some tips so you can get the most out of the forum and other Enterprise DNA resources.

  • Use the forum search to discover if your query has been asked before by another member.
  • When posting a topic with formula make sure that it is correctly formatted to preformatted text </>.


  • Use the proper category that best describes your topic
  • Provide as much context to a question as possible.
  • Include the masked demo pbix file, images of the entire scenario you are dealing with, screenshot of the data model, details of how you want to visualize a result, and any other supporting links and details.

I also suggest that you check the forum guideline How To Use The Enterprise DNA Support Forum. Not adhering to it may sometimes cause delay in getting an answer.

@dbrelsford DATEADD is a table function not a Scalar function, do simple Addition operation for adding two columns.
