You have a requirement where a datalist needs to return a specific status based on the value of a column.

In this case, we want to return the status "Expired" or "Active" based on the date value in the datalist compared to the actual date.

Edit the datalist column where you want to return the status and select Bean Shell Formatter to enter the code below.
