How do you convert date dd/mm/yyyy

Recommended Posts

Valnurat

Hi experts.

I'm sorry if this has been explained before.

I have a list of dates. Some are like this: YYYY/MM/DD and that is ok. But then I have some like this: DD/MM/YYYY and that is not ok.

I want to go through the list in convert it to YYYY/MM/DD.

How do you convert DD/MM/YYYY to YYYY/MM/DD?

Yours sincerely

Kenneth.

ok. Will look into it.

I have another thought.

If you have a mixed list of date like YYYY/MM/DD, DD/MM/YYYY and MM/YYYY/DD or any kind of mixed dates.

How do you convert it to YYYY/MM/DD?


Yours sincerely

Kenneth.

mmm, 4the YYYY is easy with StringLen, but the limit is when MM <= 12 and DD <= 12... because you don't have a way to understand if is a MM or DD, the first 12 is the limit after 12 is DD because the MM limit is 12. At the moment I don't have any idea.

Something like this :)

 

#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
#include <StringConstants.au3>

Local $aDateTimes[3] = ["17/03/2017", "2017/03/17", "03/2017/17"]
Local $aDateTimesSplitted
For $i = 0 To UBound($aDateTimes) - 1
    $aDateTimesSplitted = StringSplit($aDateTimes[$i], "/", $STR_NOCOUNT)
    If($aDateTimesSplitted[0] > 12 And $aDateTimesSplitted[0] <= 31 And $aDateTimesSplitted[1] <= 12) Then ; DD/MM/YYYY
        MsgBox($MB_ICONINFORMATION, "Date format:", "Old date format: " & $aDateTimes[$i] & @CRLF & "New date format: " & $aDateTimesSplitted[2] & "/" & _
                                                                                                                          $aDateTimesSplitted[1] & "/" & _
                                                                                                                          $aDateTimesSplitted[0])
    ElseIf($aDateTimesSplitted[0] <= 12 And $aDateTimesSplitted[1] > 31) Then ; MM/YYYY/DD
        MsgBox($MB_ICONINFORMATION, "Date format:", "Old date format: " & $aDateTimes[$i] & @CRLF & "New date format: " & $aDateTimesSplitted[1] & "/" & _
                                                                                                                          $aDateTimesSplitted[0] & "/" & _
                                                                                                                          $aDateTimesSplitted[2])
    Else
        MsgBox($MB_ICONINFORMATION, "Date format:", "Date format: " & $aDateTimes[$i])
    EndIf
Next

Where you find $aDateTimes, you could find a function that read lines and then, paste the new line as I do in the MsgBox...
This is just an example...
Tell me if this script works correctly in your specific case :)

Making that simpler:

Local $aDateTimes[3] = ["17/03/2017", "2017/03/17", "03/2017/17"]

For $i = 0 To UBound($aDateTimes) - 1
    $aDateTimes[$i] = StringRegExpReplace($aDateTimes[$i], "(\d\d)/(\d\d)/(\d\d\d\d)", "$3/$2/$1")  ; deals with DD/MM/YYYY
    $aDateTimes[$i] = StringRegExpReplace($aDateTimes[$i], "(\d\d)/(\d\d\d\d)/(\d\d)", "$2/$1/$3")  ; deals with MM/YYYY/DD
    ; there is NO way to deal with [unmanageable] US-style dates MM/DD/YYYY for DD < 13
Next
_ArrayDisplay($aDateTimes)

A way that can be valid is to parameterize the position of the year in the position within it stringsplit

DD MM YYYY     YYYY MM DD      MM YYYY DD
["11/11/2017",  "2017/11/11",   "11/2017/11"]

postion YYYY[2] postion YYYY[0] postion YYYY[1]

firts target is find the 4char value in the result of StringSplit then isolate the YYYY

in the loop you can tell if the position YYYY = 2 ... then DD MM YYYY etc...

      Good morning everyone, I thought I had already solved this issue but it turns out I did not. 
      My code finds unread emails with this specific subject line of "request" but when I change the subject to SKIPPED + "request" = ("SKIPPED request") the program still finds the email and tries to process it. I only want to process emails with the exact match subject of "request".
      Here is my code that "finds" the unread emails with the subject of "request" or so I thought. 
      Func ListUnreadEmails() ;******************************************************************************* ; Lists all unread E-mails from the folder Outlook-UDF-Test ;******************************************************************************* ; Stores all the unRead emails into an array Global $aItems = _OL_ItemFind($oOutlook, "*\Outlook-UDF-Test", $olMail, _ "[UnRead]=True", "Subject", "request", "EntryID,Subject", "", 1) ; Displays the array of unRead emails If IsArray($aItems) Then ;_ArrayDisplay($aItems, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemFind - Unread mails") Else MsgBox(48, "OutlookEX UDF: _OL_ItemFind Example Script", _ "Could not find an unread mail. @error = " & @error & ", @extended: " & @extended) EndIf ; Gets the number of unread emails Global $numberOfUnRead = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) - 1 ;MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails", $numberOfUnRead) EndFunc It acts as if any part of the subject containing the word "request" and the email is unread that it will try to process it. (I think)

      Good afternoon, I am in need of some help. I am sure this is a stupid question requiring only one or two lines of code. However, I would greatly appreciate the help I cannot figure this out. I also tried searching for the answer on the internet but no one except me apparently seems to be having a hard time figuring this out and or is asking about it. 
      I simply want to change the "status" of an email from unread to read once I have processed it. My code is over 500 lines and I would like not to clutter this post with it. Assume I have all my includes and connections properly defined and stuff. 
      Here is the bit of code where I am trying to change the email that was used from unread to read:
      Func ChangeEmailStatus() ;******************************************************************************* ; changes the status of an email from unread to Read ;******************************************************************************* Local $iRows = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails (Before Change)", $iRows) _OL_ItemModify($oOutlook,$aItems[$i][0], Default, "Read=True") MsgBox("", "Array Display 1", $aItems[1][0]) MsgBox("", "Array Display 2", $aItems[2][0]) Local $iRows = UBound($aItems, $UBOUND_ROWS) MsgBox("", "Number of Unread emails (After Change)", $iRows) EndFunc

      Hello,
      Is there any way to check for validity of a pointer to a DllStruct ?
      In the above code, a DllStruct is created from an invalid pointer. How to prevent from doing this ?
      local $tStruct = DllStructCreate("int i") DllStructSetData($tStruct, "i", 123) local $pStruct = DllStructGetPtr($tStruct) $tStruct = 0 ; destroy DllStruct ==> $pStruct becomes invalid ; how to check here for validity of $pStruct and prevent from doing the following ? $tStruct = DllStructCreate("int i", $pStruct) ; create DllStruct from invalid pointer... MsgBox(0, @ScriptName, @error) ; displays '0' : invalid pointer is not detected by DllStructCreate() MsgBox(0, @ScriptName, IsDllStruct($tStruct)) ; displays '1' : tStruct is assumed as a valid DllStruct object, which is not Thanks for help
