Change Format from date to general


I have selected a particular range in excel which is dynamic. After applying the formula to it is automatically getting converted to date format. I want to change it to general format without using hotkeys. i have already tried using hotkeys it works only when the excel workbook is visible. Someone please provide an alternate solution.

Thank you.

May I know what is that formula

Hello @Jagadesh2494 you also try below VBScript
use Invoke VBScript activity
you can change the file name and column range according to your needs…

Make sure to change file extension to .vbs after downloading…
ChangeFormat.json (826 Bytes)


Note : I applied this formula in cell K2 using write cell activity

Sorry i couldn’t open the file even after changing it to.vbs. Could you please share the work flow
