How do I get combine all the value column2 and column3 to column4
but the format is: ATB-PTRF-(value column3)-(value column2)

Hi,

Can you try the following?

row("Column4")="ATB-PTRF-"+System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Match(row("Column2").ToString,"[\d/]+").Value+"-"+row("Column3").ToString

Hi @Anggara_Rahmadhani

  1. You can use a for loop to read the value of the two columns and concatenate them and set them as value for column 4 similar to how @Yoichi shows above.

    OR

  2. You can try the following approach without using a for loop : New column in a data table by concatenating two existing columns

Hi @Yoichi
Your workflow is working on me, but the tricky using workbook is date time in value existing format not as expected when create new excel.
what if I want output just using file existing?


Thanks,
Best Regards

Beginner can also use this logic of String Manupulation.

"ATB-PTRF-" + row(“column3”).ToString + “-” + split(row(“column2”).ToString," ")(0)

Hi @Anggara_Rahmadhani

Try this way

  1. Read the excel and store in dt1 [Please tick the preserve format in read range]

  2. use invoke code with dt1 as In/Out argument and write the following code

dt1.AsEnumerable().ToList().ForEach(Sub(row) row(“column4”)= “ATB-PTRF”+row(“column2”).ToString+row(“column3”).ToString)

Then write the dt1 to the excel file.

Hi @Nived
Sorry, I never using invoke code before… can you help please create in .xaml

Hi,

Can you try Preserve Format option of Read Range Activity? (However, it’s very slow)

Or the following expression might work.

row("Column4")="ATB-PTRF-"+DateTime.FromOADate(Double.Parse(row("Column2").ToString)).ToString("M/d/yyyy")+"-"+row("Column3").ToString

Regards,

Hi @Yoichi
