If Statement not returning correct  results

Hi Experts,

I have a workbook that contains a sheet populated from a SharePoint site.

Within this sheet I am attempting to add calculated columns for a pivot table.

This is a simple test formula I have inserted in cells W:
=IF((Y2 > X2), "Inflow","Continued")

The results are in the attached file (with the 3 columns and a few rows copied to a new book).

This formula is returning "Continued" whether the date in column Y is greater than the date in column X.

I am looking for it to return "Inflow" if the date in Y is older than the date in X, and "Continued" if the date in Y is more recent than the date in X.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

The columns in your posted sheet don't match your description of the problem and do you realize that the years in column B are 2103 rather than 2013?

Wow.....

Looking at it so long, I didn't even see that!

Corrected the year, and it works just fine.

Thank you!
