Date calculation in Nintex


Here is my scenaio:

I am querying list and collecting "Date initiated" column values into a collection variable. I now would like to iterate through each date initiated value and calculate "Number of days in Approval" which is a difference between (current date and Date initiated). I then update the number of days in approval field in the list item.

Sounds simple but with dates involved in the collection, I am not able to achieve this.

  • I iterate through Date initiated collection and store each date in "var_datestring" String variable. 
  • I then use convert value to use "datediffdays" function to calculate the difference between var_datestring and current date.

I schedule this workflow once a day and the workflow ends with the error below

Collection Operation Configuration:

Convert value action configuration.
