I added an announcement as a web part to a page.  Just to test it, I added an item and set the Expires to yesterday (3/28/2012) but it still appears.

Isn't it supposed to not show on the page.

Thanks

The Innovator,

In the webpart, you need to make sure that it is filtering the items in the list to display only the items in which the "Expire Date" is greater than (or greater than or equal to) today.

You can follow these steps to double check if thats set (this is in SharePoint 2010):

1.

Edit the page, then Edit the Announcements Web Part.

2.

Under the List View section, click the hyperlink that says "Edit the current view".

3.

In the view, you need to set the 'Filter' area to "Show Items Only When the following is True".  And then choose the 'Expires' column and set it to be 'Greater than',  and then type in [Today]. This will filter all your announcements to use the Expire column correctly.  Note that if there is nothing in the Expire field, that announcement will not show up.  If you use the filter, everything must have an Expire date.

I think you mean less than [Today]
Nothing shows up with greater than.  Not even my future announcements
