Plz Help, Broken Dataview Calendar Code

I’m trying to use the Dataview Calendar function but it shows nothing. No Error, but it doesn’t render out the calendar in read mode.

this is my code:

```dataview
CALENDAR Date 
From [[Calendar]]
Where Status = ["🗓️"] AND file.folder != "Z-Templates" 
```        .

My date frontmatter field is “Date” so that should be returning the date for the notes to sourced from.
Does something look obviously wrong? (the fillstop at the end is just for the forum to show the final line of code - as part of the code block)
I could have sworn it was working and then just stopped, I have also checked for updates in all my plugings and theme but nothing seems wrong…

It’s strange that the calendar doesn’t display at all, even with an error.
What does this display?

```dataview
LIST Date 
From [[Calendar]]
```

and

```dataview
CALENDAR Date 
From [[Calendar]]
```

On the other hand, this: Status = ["🗓️"] won’t work, you’ll have to use this: Status = "🗓️".

So I tested what you said:

```dataview
List Date
From [[Calendar]] 
```     .

That works and outputs a full list of everything linked to [[Calendar]] but when I switch it to:

```dataview
Calendar Date
From [[Calendar]] 
```   .

It is literally blank with nothing rendered, I’ll show you a before and after (Source & Read View)

And regards to the Status, I’ve found that does work in my other Dataview tables, it’s because it’s an array :slight_smile: So I can give it multiple Status and then each one is referenced as [“:movie_camera:”, “:popcorn:”] for example.

But the weird thing is even when I take this:

```dataview
CALENDAR Date 
From [[Calendar]]
Where Status = ["🗓️"] AND file.folder != "Z-Templates" 
```        .

And change it to a LIST, it displays the list correctly. So it seems to just the Calendar function not working? I have no idea what could be wrong.

You’ve repeatedly said that your list view sites the days correctly, and showed the query, but what is the result of that query (or some of the results)? File names? Dates? What?

Where is your Date defined? The one file example you’ve shown doesn’t show how it’s defined, indicating this might be an issue…

Okay I’ve fixed it, I found a few errors, wrong emoji in places was giving some funky results, and turns out one file out of all of them had broken frontmatter but honestly still not sure what exactly was giving the zero calendar render. sooo thanks for the joining the journey people!

if youve stuck around for this long, here is what it’s supposed to look like, I also have a week and day view which work a treat :muscle::grin:
