Filter date column in datatable

Hi, need help.
I have some dates like in “sales date” column in a datatable

I want dates which are less than or equal to 7 days from now.
In the above case it will be 16 sept and above.

So I used one assign activity like below:
NewDate = DateTime.Today.AddDays(-7).tostring(“MM/dd/yyyy”)

Then I used Filter datatable activity and tried to filter like below:
“sales date” >= NewDate.tostring

But executing above function is not giving me any result.

Can you please help?

Hi @Deepa_Madkar

You just have to parse the datetime from the Sales column and then Compare with the the date condition

DateTime.ParseExact(row("columnname ").ToString.Substring(0, 10),“MM/dd/yyyy”, System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture) >= Now.AddDays(-7)

Thank you @pravin_calvin for the help.

But on running the file, the sheet 2 is displaying all the data which was in sheet 1.

Sheet 2 should show only records with sales date having less than or equal to 7 days from current date.

Is there any way to achieve this please
