I am looking to find all the dates of the previous month and get each date in a variable using a for each loop.
For Eg: For Jan 2022, I need to get all the dates from 1st Jan 2022 to 31st Jan 2022 in a list and get each date in a variable . Please suggest how i can get it.
Could you please explain the purpose to suggest better solution…
Hi @mayankjha986 ,
We would need to know if you need to Assign all the Date values to each one variable or if we could keep it as a List/Array/Dictionary.
For Example, Storing the Dates in a List or an Array could be easier.
PreviousMonthsDates be a variable of Type
Using an Activity we can get the Previous Month dates in the following manner :
PreviousMonthDates = Enumerable.Range(1,now.AddDays(-Now.Day).Day).Select(Function(x)new DateTime(Now.AddMonths(-1).Year,Now.AddMonths(-1).Month,x)).ToArray
Though here we do not have multiple variables for each date value, we can access the Date value using the index in the below way :
PreviousMonthDates(0) //Should Output First Date of the Previous Month
We could Also Store it in a Dictionary in the below way :
PreviousMonthDatesDict is a variable of Type
Dictionary(Of Integer, DateTime)
Using an Assign Activity we should be able to Convert the Array to a Dictionary
PreviousMonthDatesDict = new Dictionary(Of Integer,DateTime) //Initialise Dictionary
PreviousMonthDatesDict = Enumerable.Range(1,now.AddDays(-Now.Day).Day).ToDictionary(Function(x)x,Function(y)new DateTime(Now.AddMonths(-1).Year,Now.AddMonths(-1).Month,y))
We could access the dates by it’s Integer Key corresponding to the Date
PreviousMonthDatesDict(1) //Should Output the First Date of the Previous Month
Hey @mayankjha986 !! It would be better to know your purpose with this to understand your need, but come on!
Step 1: Let’s look at the variables. We first create “date_RefDate” which will be our reference variable, which will assume each date of interest to add to our “arr_dates” which will be the array that will store our dates of interest.
Step 2: Let’s create our first reference date which is the first of the last month.
Step 3: We’re going to add these dates to our array and then we’re going to add a day to them.
Hope this helps!
