I have a current year - Now.Year (not in a variable)
and I have Experience (its string not double or int)
and I want to create a variable that will subtract the Experience from the current year.
Please help me
You can use
Now.adddays(-experience days in int)
or for years
Now.addyears(-experience year in int)
@dlichtenstadt You can also try this :
Declare a String Variable say startYear, then use the below expression in an Assign Activity:
startYear = (Now.Year - Convert.ToDouble(Experience)).ToString
Thank you very much
@ImPratham45 thank you also but it seemed to complicated!!
I have another question
If I have a current date (15/06/2020 for example) and I want to subtract an amount of years that in a variable (str=20)
So the answer would be - 15/06/2000
how can i do that?
@dlichtenstadt Is the Current Date a String type ?
Yes it can be
I just got a current date (Now.date) and it gave it to me in date type, and I change it to string!
but i got in the current date also the time - how can i delete that? and stay only with the date?
@dlichtenstadt So you just want to get the Date Part and not the Time? If So, you can try the following:
strDate = Now.ToString(“dd/MM/yyyy”)
Hi @ dlichtenstadt
Please follow below steps to subtract 20 years, if you find it useful.
Assign string variable :- currentDate = now.Date.ToString(“dd-MM-yyyy”)
Assign string variable :- ExperienceStr = “20”
Double variable :- Experience = CDbl(ExperienceStr)
Assign String Variable:- SubtractYears = DateTime.ParseExact(currentDate,“dd-MM-yyyy”,System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture).AddYears(-CINT(Experience)).ToShortDateString
Input : 15-06-2020
Output : 06/15/2020
@ dlichtenstadt Please find the attached screenshot for Uipath code.
thank you @Latika10011740 but it didn’t work
I did what u said and I have now only the date without the time
how do I subtract the EXP variable from the Date var (both in string)
Date - 16/05/2020, EXP - “20”
DateAfter - 16/05/2000
