Split date in datarow

Hi all,
i need some support about a value of type datetime, contained in datarow(ex.20/05/2021). I want to extract or the date in string format without slash(20 05 2021) or the single value(20),(05),(2021).
Appreciate your help

Hi @andreus91

To get dateformat withoutslash, you can try below syntax

in an assign activity

str_var = datetime.ParseExact(“20/05/2021”,“dd/MM/yyyy”,system.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture).ToString(“dd MM yyyy”)

If you want to get the values separately use
Split(“20/05/2021”,“/”) and get the result in array.

If you can access the DataRow variable in some variable, let say row in an iterative activity like For Each Row, then use the following expression:

DateTime.ParseExact(row(0).ToString,“dd/MM/yyyy”,System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture).ToString(“dd”) → Returns you day

DateTime.ParseExact(row(0).ToString,“dd/MM/yyyy”,System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture).ToString(“MM”) → Returns you month

DateTime.ParseExact(row(0).ToString,“dd/MM/yyyy”,System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture).ToString(“yyyy”) → Returns you year

DateTime.ParseExact(row(0).ToString,“dd/MM/yyyy”,System.Globalization.CultureInfo.InvariantCulture).ToString(“dd MM yyyy”) → Returns you the date without slashes

Otherwise, you can try splitting the date you are receiving in terms of ‘/’:
