Difference Between Data manipulation with list or dictionary and Data manipulation with string

Is there any key difference between “Data manipulation with List or Dictionary” and “Data manipulation with String” in UiPath?

each data structure has different functionalities - if you need to perform a search, filter (mostly complex ones) datatable and also dictionary will be a good choice cause these structures have pre-build methods for us to use

let’s say for instance that you need to store all names, birthdates, and ids of classmates - we might want to search for specific names or id
or might want to filter the structure in a way that the result will be only the ones with specific birthdates.
in this case, LINQ queries will ease the task

list structure is convenient when we need to store sorted unique values and many more…

read about all these structures, it’s a very interesting complex field :smiley:
