I'm trying to use the 2013 built in date validation. I want to make sure the date entered into the GoLive Date is not more that 10 days in the past.

=[GoLive Date]>[GoLive Date]-10

How can I turn this into a true/false statement?

  • You can use JSLink on Date field on edit and New form. Apply JSlink , Fetch Date field , Check the value of field and throw user friendly message using JQuery. – Dipen Shah Dec 21 '15 at 4:23

  • Hi Dipen, thanks for the tip, but I'm wanting to use the built in validation so it works with the data sheet view as well and new, edit forms. – sansSpoon Dec 21 '15 at 23:20

You can not reference other Columns in a Column validation,

=[Due Date]>[Created]-10



do not work (but can be used in the Form Validation: List Settings-> Validation Settings)

In a Column validation you can use the Today() function

date not older than 10 days in the past

=[Due Date]>Today()-10
  • I see now that doing my original calculation was comparing a value that hadn't been set. The today function will help me out here, thanks. – sansSpoon Dec 21 '15 at 23:42

You can make it = [date1] > ([date2] - 10)
