Yeah got it @Mayur_Pawar,

Do these steps :slight_smile:

  1. read the text file and store the text in a string variable
  2. Get the date and store in another variable
  3. Use string manipulation activities like text.Replace("{0}", dateString) and use that string wherever required

Hope I’m clear

Hi
Hope these steps would help you resolve this
—use read text file activity and get the output with a variable of type string named intext
—now use a assign activity like this
intext = String.Format(intext,Now.ToString(“dd/MM/yy”))
—where now the place holder {0} will be replaced with the date value

—you were almost done because these kind of place holder is used when we use String.Format method

Cheers @Mayur_Pawar
