Get a date in formart "dd/mm/yyyy"

Hi Madhuraj,
I have a dt(variable) with format “dd.MM.yyyy”, and I want to use your method to convert it into a new format to"yyyyMMdd".
I tried with assign NewDT=Convert.ToDateTime(dt.ToString(“yyyyMMdd”)), system always come up with a complier error reminder.
Please help to take a look and help me on this.


Hi Sir,

What if I begin with a variable dt instead of today?
I tried both dt.ToString(“yyyyMMdd”, System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture) and DateTime.dt.ToString(“yyyyMMdd”, System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture), neither of them works.

Hey @Allen_Huang

Try to use this and lemme know.

DateTime.ParseExact("your Input Date String", "dd.MM.yyyy", CultureInfo.InvariantCulture)




Thanks for your reply, I have fixed this through other way.

Here is a detailed article on that :slight_smile:

Hi , I’m new to Uipath trying to fetch date from mail using item.Header(“Date”) ,the output comes in the format of Thu 02/27/2020 8:00am and I want to convert the mail date format to System date format i.e 02/27/2020

Please help.

@Samuel_Sugur1 You can use item.Header(“Date”).ToString.Substring(4,10) - this will give you 02/27/2020

Try .ToString at the end also.

Still shows error -Header is not the member of System.Net.mail.message

Hi, Could please help me to convert 13th Oct’23 this date in dd/MM/yyyy format?

Hi, @Veeha,

You can use the following code to convert the “13 Oct’23” to “dd/MM/yyyy” format. A small modification you have to do in order to use the code, remove “th”.

Date Convertion : DateTime.ParseExact(inputDate, “dd MMM’yy”, System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture).ToString(“dd/MM/yyyy”)
