In SP2013 view filters, if I want to subtract say a week from today I can do [Today]-7 which works. But I want to remove 30 years, which is [Today]-10950 however it complains that the date is not in a supported format. It seems to support until 9999.

Also tried =DATE(YEAR([Today])-30,MONTH([Today]),DAY([Today])) but same thing.

Does anyone know?


TODAY() function is not available in view filter, it just works with calculated column.

So the limit is 9999, we are unable to remove 30 years in view filter.


Have you tried TODAY() function instead? The following returns 6/2/1991.



You could modify your view using SharePoint Designer to set this filter value. It allowed me to set the filter for 30 years in SharePoint 2013 as shown below.

<Query><OrderBy><FieldRef Name="ID"/></OrderBy><Where><Lt><FieldRef Name="DueDate"/>
<Value Type="DateTime"><Today OffsetDays="-10950"/></Value></Lt></Where></Query>
