Getting error message ,The DateTime represented by the string is not supported in calendar System.Globalization.GregorianCalendar

Sequence3.xaml (31.1 KB)

While entering the date (34/34/2021) that does not exist getting an error message instead of going in else loop.
Took input from user in “dd/MM/yyyy” format and Converting it into “MM/dd/yyyy” format…


Can you try to use the following condition in IF activity whether input string is valid datetime string, in advance?

DateTime.TryParseExact(journeyDate,"dd/MM/yyyy",Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture,System.Globalization.DateTimeStyles.None,New DateTime)

or If use InvokeMethod activity, we can also get validation result as boolean and parsed result as datetime using following expression.

ret = DateTime.TryParseExact(journeyDate,"dd/MM/yyyy",Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture,System.Globalization.DateTimeStyles.None,resultDateTime)


34/34/2021 is not a valid date
last month in year is 12
latest day in a month is 31

so it is reasonable that the exception states that this date is not conatined in a calendar

we can handle this with tryParseExact as mentioned by Yoichi

Also have a look here on how to handle multiple dateformats (TryParseExact, ParseExcact)


Ya ,so i was expecting it to go in else condition.

Thankyou It worked

FYI, if you want to use Invoke Method activity, the following will help you.
