Hi @prashantP

Use row.item(“StringValue”)=CDate(row(“StringValue”).ToString

Use in the assign activity as

val = datetime.parse(row(“string value”).tostring, “format you are getting from excel”, System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture).tostring(“format you want”)

Hello @AshwinS2

as you said i did this variable type change as a string…check below img

after runing process value is typing with time. pls check below img…

and having date values in “stingvalue” is in below img…

Hi @prashantP
Use Convert.ToDateTime(row(“StingValue”).ToString)

or DateTime.ParseExtract(row(“StringValue”).ToString,“dd/mm/yyyy”,System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCultrue).ToString(“dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm:ss”)

hi @HareeshMR
thank you…
but still getting error pls correct me if i miss something ?

Place the cursor on the error so that it will show what is the error in the entire string @prashantP

One thing is, change datetime.parse to DateTime.ParseExact @Assetsoft… that will work

using exact

@prashantP Try below solution

assign str = row(“ur column name”).ToString
assign str = cDate(str).ToString(“dd/MM/yyyy”)

hello @indra

hi @prashantP

Use val1=CDate(val).ToString(“MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss”)
