Update sql table with date format include

Dear members,

I have a sql table, which include date type, need to update date from excel to the sql table, not sure which type I could set for the Parameters? I can only get datetime type variable, not sure how to get date type variable.


Hi @li.yu

You can pass the date as string as like this,

Select* from table where date = ‘10-12-2022’

I set as string, when uploading, no error, but no data updated in sql for this date type filed.

@li.yu Try like this,

“Select * from table where date = 10-12-2022”

Removing the single quote from the date.

If it’s worked use with a variable,

“Select* from table where date =” + Saplastup



Create string variable of date in uipath

for example dateStr=‘10-12-2022’

Use this variable in update query like this

"update tableName set columnName="+"'"+dateStr+"'"+"where Id="+"'"+1+"'"

you can add any id according to ur scenario.

Hope it will work

May be you can check your datatype for the date column in datatable created is database. mostly use varchar as datatype.
