Issue with Windows framework while parsing date format

I tried using a simple parse expression in windows framework & its showing below error
“Expression Activity type ‘VisualBasicValue`1’ requires compilation in order to run. Please ensure that the workflow has been compiled.”

Expression used : Date.Parse(“December 18,2022”).ToString(“yyyy-MM-dd”)

Its working in Legacy framework. What am I missing in windows framework for this expression to work.


There are already lots of posts about that error. Search the forum. It has to do with the double quotes.

Hello @Divya_Salve

If you need an another approach you can try with Modify Date activity.


here: Troubleshooting Guide : Conversion from Windows-Legacy project to Windows project

retype the double quotes and use only: "

Hi @Divya_Salve
To accomplish this, use the “Modify Date” action in UiPath.


Thank you. It’s with replacing double quotes
