Saving file with just the date no time


#1

I hoping for a suggestion on how to solve, I need to save a file by the date only, not time (it won’t allow to save the file with : in the file name).

See below for what I’ve tried, the issue is that by selecting the date from Note only, this will only for the date on the image, I can’t use coordinates for some reason (it goes to a different place on the screen even after taking a new image).

Is there a way to have coordinates for the whole screen, or a way to create a date variable with just the date no time?

Jason, in 1.2.0 it can easily be done through data conversion from date to string variable as shown below.

If you use an earlier RPA Express version, you can cut out the time using the Substring text action.
