Hi @Palaniyappan,

I am stuck with a similar sort of situation. I need to search with a date in excel and get the cell position. I tried your workflow and it’s not working in my scenario. The date format in excel is the dd-mmmm-yyyy format, but couldn’t find the cell position. I think it’s not working as the date in excel is Value(date format).

When I do a date search normally in my excel using ctrl F, I need to select ‘Values’ in Look in: option for getting the result.


Could you please work out what needs to be changed in your workflow (in If condition under While loop) to get my result.

Thanks in advance.

If possible can I see the input like even an image is fine
Cheers @anoop.mohandas

Thanks for your quick response.

Input will be today’s date or any past date.I want to search the below excel with today’s date or past date and input the below columns of that date.

Below is the image of the excel/spreadsheet where I will be inputting the data in the corresponding search date columns.


I tried the if condition as - cashflowDT.Rows(cashflowDT.Rows.IndexOf(row))(counter).ToString.equals(“dd/MM/yyyy”))

But not getting any output. even no error.

Instead of today’s date, if I want to pass a previous date through a variable, then what changes need to done on the If condition.
