Executing a conditional date check in vba

The value in X2 is a string date. The following code returns a value of "FALSE" in B2. I want it to execute the if statement and return a 1 or 0.

Dim EndDate As Date
EndDate = "1/1/2016"

Worksheets("PO_List").Range("B2").Formula= "=If(" & DateValue(Range("X2")) <= DateValue(EndDate) & ",1,0)"

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

try something like this:

Dim EndDate As Date
Dim tmpF As String
EndDate = "1/1/2016"

tmpF = "=IF(" & DateValue(Range("X2")) & " <= DateValue(""" & EndDate & """)" & ",1,0)"

Worksheets("PO_List").Range("B2").Formula = tmpF

Found a solution through a local source (thanks Eric)

Dim EndDate As Date
EndDate = DateValue("1/1/2016")

Worksheets("PO_List").Range("B2").Value = IIf(DateValue(Range("X2")) <= EndDate, 1, 0)
