I have used data scraping to extract a column of data. from the column I extracted a cell. This cell is “6/27/2019 Thu” but I have made it a variable. Sometimes, obviously it could be “xx/x/xxxx day” depending on which month/day of the year it is (but would still be a variable).
I would like to subtract this date from todays current date. I believe to do this I need to somehow trim the day part off and then maybe convert it from data table to date? I have had no luck so far. Please let me know if you can help. Thank you!
