Hello!

I want to write a file and save it as “upload july 19th Part 1”. “upload” and “Part 1” is fixed… But how can i get the date in a form like this? The date changes every week

Yah @Loons
We can do like this in general
“Yourfilename”+”_”+now.tostring(“dd_MMM_yy”)+”.yourfileextension”

To be exact in what you need
“Yourfilename”+”_”+Now.String(“MMM dd”)+”th”+”_Part1”+”.yourfileextension”

Simple isn’t it @Loons
Cheers

Use this to get the current date in that particular format:

DateTime.Now.ToString("yyyy/MM/dd")

“upload “+date.now.tostring(“MMM dd”)+” th Part1.xyz”

xyz is your file extension…

But when I have for example “july 1st” then “th” isn’t correct.

@Loons
Try this…
"upload "+now.ToString(“MMMM dd”)+“th “+“Part 1”+”.FileExtension”

Fine
in that case this would work, sounds the same but of different format

Hey @sagaryeole, this looks brilliant. What does the cdate function do? Can see the overall logic (choosing ‘st’, ‘rd’ ‘th’ depending on date) but haven’t seen this function before.

Thanks

CDate is use to convert string to Date format.

Hey,
But this would give filename as “11st, 12nd, 13rd Aug” but not “11th, 12th, 13th Aug…”
