I have content creation table that has a field for date and time.  I am trying to create a formula similar to this 

 

If ( {Date to Post}=TODAY( ), "Post")

 

but it is throwing an error and I wonder if it is because my column has both date and time.

 

this is the youtube video that was helping me.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pai7nmnLh6g

 

But i can't get past entering the formula.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Hey @blmahon

I've never had a reason to use the IS_SAME() function, but I think today is that day!
Give this formula a shot:

IF(
    IS_SAME({Date to Post}, TODAY(), "day"),
    "Post"        
)

Here's the behavior it returned me when I tested it:

As a side note, it might not be totally relevant or applicable to your use case, but your post reminded me about this thread from yesterday. Might be worth a look to see if it might support or influence your solution a bit.
