I am trying to make a calculated column produce a Yes/No when:

IF([Reminder Date]= [Today], “Yes”)


IF([Reminder Date] does not equal [Today], “No”)

What is the correct formula?


Basic syntax for IF statement in calculated formula is:


So, try to write down your formula in above format.


  1. Sometimes comma(,) does not work in formula (I am not sure but it is based on something language on your site). So in that case use semicolon(;) instead of comma(,).

    For detailed information and references check my answer given in below link:

    IF statement with text field isn't possible?

  2. Sometimes, The [Today] is not supported in the Calculated Column. Check below work arounds before using Today in your formula.


The IF has 3 arguments, so:

IF(A, B, C)

  • where A is a boolean expression
  • B is what's returned if A is true and
  • C is what's returned if A is false

So if you want something like:

=IF([Reminder Date]=[Today], "Yes", "No")
