Read two dates in my .txt file

I need to store two dates that appear in my .txt file and check if they are the same or different to include a condition

For example:


I need to check if these two dates marked in yellow are the same or not

HI @lourena.coutinho

To convert string date (dd-MM-yyyy) in DateTime format just use the following code in the Assign activity.

Date1 = DateTime.ParseExact(StrDate, “dd-MM-yyyy”,System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture)

Here, in code you can see that, there’s a variable StrDate (type String) holding your string date.
Date1 is of type DateTime

So as you have var Date1 (DateTime) holding specified date.
You can compare as you want it with today’s date in If activity with condition

—> Date1 > DateTime.Today

Hi, but I need to read the dates in my text file not convert


Could you share the sample Text file


Here is the workflow
Compare Date.xaml (6.5 KB)

Hope this will work for you

Let me know if you face any issue

The first date (Regex Dt1) appears correctly, the second (Regex dt2) appears empty and not the date. And the only thing I changed was the variable, in both expressions.

I Change the expression in the second variable and Know works. Thanks for your help

@Gokul001 , I have seen your workflow. Can you explain why you use “(?<=PERIODO:\s)” this \s, while in case of “Regex_Dt1” you don’t use \s “?<=EMISSAO:” .
