    Public Function dateManipulate(sDate)

    If Len(sDate) > 10 Then
    Reporter.ReportEvent micWarning, "Error! Bad Input", "Bad Input. Actual: " & sDate & ". Expected: m-d/yyyy"
    End If

    locDelimOne = InStr(1, sDate, "-")
    locDelimTwo = InStr(1, sDate, "/")

    If locDelimOne = 2 Then
    sMonth = Left(sDate, 1)
    sMonth = "0" & sMonth
    ElseIf locDelimOne = 3 Then
    sMonth = Left(sDate, 2)
    Else
    Reporter.ReportEvent micWarning, "Error! Bad Input", "Bad Input. Actual: " & sDate & ". Expected: m-d/yyyy"
    End If

    sDay = Mid(sDate, locDelimOne + 1, locDelimTwo - locDelimOne - 1)

    If Len(sDay) = 1 Then
    sDay = "0" & sDay
    End If

    sLen = Len(sDate) - locDelimTwo
    sYear = Mid(sDate, locDelimTwo + 3, sLen)

    iDate = sMonth & "/" & sDay & "/" & sYear

    dateManipulate = iDate

    End Function

    Hi,
    Please try on the following Code which will help to convert the system date to specified format(mm/dd/yy)

    Code:
    SystemDate = Date

    Date1 = Datepart("d",SystemDate)
    month1 = Datepart("m",SystemDate)
    year1 = Datepart("yyyy",SystemDate)

    If len(Date1) = 1 then
    Date1 = "0" & Date1
    Else
    Date1 = Date1
    End If

    If len(month1) = 1 then
    month1 = "0" & month1
    Else
    month1 = month1
    End If

    year1= Right(year1,2)

    Converted_date = month1 & "/" & Date1 & "/" & year1

    shv_shanmu24, I would only like to add that your code is not going to convert the date from the format mythreyi has posted in the original post. It is only going to work for System Dates.

    Hi Anoosh,

    i read the thread name "How to convert the system date into specified format?" alone and i didn't have a look into the conversation that went between you and mythreyi. So, i provided that code.


    Hi Mytheri,

    you can use the code suggested by Anoosh.
    Sorry for providing you the code which does not meet your exact expectation.

    Well, that's alright. There is no need to apologize to anyone.

    My only intent was to point this out for mytheryi and other readers who visit this board.

    Re: How to convert system date to specified date in QTP 9.2?

    I had to use Date1 = Datepart("d",SystemDate) instead of Date1 = Datepart("dd",SystemDate)

    I got this resolved

    But I recorded a gui application where I enter that days date in it. So when i run the script next day it takes y'days date but i want to use the present days date. How can I do that
    Can you advice.

    Re: How to convert system date to specified date in QTP 9.2?

    Hi lvr,

    before executing the yesterdays script just mention a statement for system date.

    for ex:
    Dim MyDate
    MyDate = Date

    in VB script "Date" is for todays date.

    Cheers,
    Bhaskar Kumar

    this is the most simplest way, you can do for user defined date formate and date addition and subtration
    msgbox Day(Date)&"/"&Month(Date)&"/"&Year(Date)
    msgbox Day(Date+1)&"/"&Month(Date+1)&"/"&Year(Date+1)
    msgbox Day(Date-1)&"/"&Month(Date-1)&"/"&Year(Date-1)

    Regards,
    Venkat
