When you say restrict in the backend, I presume you mean in the Load Script?

In the case I think you want something like


FROM [yourSource.QVD]

WHERE DateDueGracePeriod <= Today;

There are other ways you could go about this, but hopefully this will get you started.

May be something like this:

LOAD YourFields,

          If(IsNull(DateSubmitted), DateDueGracePeriod, DateSubmitted) as DateNew,

FROM Source

Where not IsNull(DateSubmitted) or Num(DateDueGracePeriod) <= Num(Today());
