Convert Date

4 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hey guys, I would like to know how can I convert a date string to a numeric format

Initial Format: Fri 21, May 2010 (Mon,Tue,Wed,Thu,Fri,Sat,Sun)

Final Format: 2010-05-21 (YYYY-MM-DD)

Im sure its quite simple, using string functions but I dont know where to begin...

Thanks!

Dieuz,

I would use StringSplit to break the initial format at the comma. You then have 2 parts which, as their components are of easily definable size, can be further broken down with StringMid. Then use an array to convert the month to a umber and finally reassemble the parts to get the new format.

I will give it go, but I will only post it if you post your try first! :(

Dieuz,

You are not going to spoil my fun! :(

#include <Array.au3>

Global $aMonths[12] = ["Jan", "Feb", "Mar", "Apr", "May", "Jun", _
                       "Jul", "Aug", "Sep", "Oct", "Nov", "Dec"]

$sInitDate = "Fri 21, May 2010"

$aSplit = StringSplit($sInitDate, ",")

$sDay =  StringFormat("%02i", StringMid($aSplit[1], StringInStr($aSplit[1], " ") + 1))
$iMon = StringFormat("%02i", _ArraySearch($aMonths, StringMid($aSplit[2], 2, 3)) + 1)
$sYear = StringMid($aSplit[2], 6)

$sFinalDate = $sYear & "-" & $iMon & "-" & $sDay

MsgBox(0, "Result", "2010-05-21" & @CRLF & $sFinalDate)
