Sort by date and time

Hi guys,

How can filtrer data by date and time, which is in this format as a string “05/06/2019 15:34:02” ?

Thank you!

you can use filter datatable activity buddy

you can mention the column name in the column name section and value you have in value section

Yes sure,

Here you go, A.xlsx (8.7 KB)

so what data you want to filter buddy @mz3bel

Hi @mz3bel,

You can use the sort data table for the specific date column you want

   DataView dv = ft.DefaultView;
   dv.Sort = "DateColumn desc";
   DataTable sortedDT = dv.ToTable();

Alright :slight_smile:

Yea sorry, i meant sort, so i tough about filter :smiley:

so you want now to go with sort


Yes, please! My problem is that when i save this data on orcherstrator, it’s get randomly saved, not sorted.

So, i tough i would sort by date and time, before i save it on orchestrator.

Cheers mate

Did that work buddy @mz3bel


It works, but there’s a small issue, when i added a number to system “as system1 and system2”

The sort of data changed… it’s takes on considiration system1 as first data…

Which my issue, it should only focus on “title D” nothing more… PS : very sensitive data :smiley:
