I’m trying to loop through some values of excel, one of the values in excel is =TODAY() + 7 all the other values are text. I placed them inside a dictionary (Of String, string). When I’m trying to input all these values into a form on a web app, I get an error with this date value, it does not read this value as a string, and thus writing wrong value in the form. How should I fixed this issue?
I cannot share my workflow… I’m just a student who is doing an internship in an enterprise and its the enterprise test environment … I can display the date just normally when trying to open it with a message bot, but I think that is because you can read an excel cell calue and the output is generic variable …
Maybe it is because I made my dictionary from string values and the output of the formula in the excel file is maybe not string value??
indeed when I change it into General type of variable in the excel sheet I get exactly the wrong date value, that I got when placing it into the web application.
But I need to work with dynamic variable not fixed … so not sure how I put that in excel file without using the date type …
If you use =TEXT(TODAY() + 7,“yyyy/MM/dd”) in the excel sheet it is displayes and used as text so UiPath shows exactly the value that is displayed in the excel file, if you use =TEXT(TODAY() + 7,“yyyy/MMMM/dd”) than UIPath displays also the name of the month.
I only needed the number in this case
I need to have a dynamic date, so everytime I run the robot the date must be today + 7 days that’s why I cant remove the formula. but if you use the formula =TEXT(TODAY() + 7,“yyyy/MM/dd”), like a said above, it solved my issue and showed the correct date in UiPath everytime I run the robot now
