Hi,

You can get last date. Use assign activity with datetime variable.

@ghazanfar Iâ€‹ wantâ€‹ useâ€‹ conditionâ€‹ forâ€‹ checkâ€‹ dateâ€‹
ifâ€‹ todayâ€‹ = firstâ€‹ dayâ€‹ (Inâ€‹ workingâ€‹ day)
Iâ€‹ wantâ€‹ assignâ€‹ date2 =â€‹ lastâ€‹ dateâ€‹ previousâ€‹ month

thenâ€‹ date2â€‹ = today

Hi You can use this workflow. I created 1 excel files which contains holidays date bot will first get the todays date then will check whether it is weekend or working day if it is not sunday or saturday then it will check whether it is public holiday or not by comparing it with excel sheet (Holidays workbook) then it will calculate last date of previous month from today.

@ghazanfar No.

If today = 02/09/2021 and working day first date in month.
Because 01/09/2021 have public holiday.
I want to output = 31/08/2021

If today = 03/09/2021. It not first date in working date in month.
I want output = 03/09/2021

Remark: If not first week of month and not first date working in month â†’ output = today

Please guide me more for solve it.
