I have a simple formula date field which I want to return a BLANK DATE (not a NULL) if the criteria is false. I tried many syntax, but all failed


There is nothing called a blank date to my knowledge.

It would be either one of the below two

I) Any date

II) Null

You cannot assign any other value apart from these two!
