Yes. You can filter the dates using the Filter DataTable Activity.

Make sure that, the column in the datatable should be DateTime data type.

Create a DateTime variable with a date and use the same variable in the Value field (condition).

For creating date -
dtDate = new DateTime(2019, 01, 03)

if we give like that in assign activity,it is showing error as datarow cannot be converted to datatable
