I have Run If action I am trying to use, but the 2 dates I'm comparing are showing the time after them as well.
Using the Log History action, I found my 2 dates are never comparing correctly because they're coming out like this:
Run If 9/25/2018 1:01:45 PM = 9/25/2018 12:00:00 AM
I would like an email to send if 9/25/2018 = 9/25/2018
How can I trim the string so only the date shows? I would like the string after 2018 ignored and extracted into a variable because if I count from the beginning or end to trim it, when the month is a 2-digit month the results will be different. I need to change 9/25/2018 1:01:45 PM to be only 9/25/2018 and extract to a variable. Any ideas?
Solved! Go to Solution.
You can try converting both variables into a string , Build String and use the fn-FormatDate (date, "MM / d / yyyy")
Hope this can help you

Thank you, Reva! I hadn't tried Build String-- I will try it to practice. I was able to solve the problem using:
Extract Substring from Start of String:
My Wednesday Reminder Date was formatting like this originally: 10/2/2018 12:00:00 AM
So I extracted 9 characters from start of the string which leaves me only with this: 10/2/2018
I am hoping it works with single digit months as well, but maybe that's where I'll need to build a string. Would the space at the end be part of the date if I extract 9 characters from the beginning of a date with a single digit month? 9/2/2018#
I wonder if that would mess up my workflow then.
If you use your solution then you will find a problem like that.
You can use the "string build" or "Set Variable" action with FormatDate Function and the result is a String Format.

So you can compare it.
If the answer is correct, So please mark the answer as correct.

I have a leading 1 in my Date Column values in SharePoint List.
The Data is like Below.
Date Opened = 760308 ,731225,990125,970609,970702,1000112
760308 = March 8th, 1976
731225 = December 25th, 1973
990125 = January 25th, 1999
970609 = June 9th, 1997
970702 = July 2nd, 1997
1000112 = January 12th, 2000
Basically,I need to change them into MMDDYYYY format.Is there a way we can achieve this format by removing the leading 1 in front of dates .Please let me know if you have any questions.Thank You
