How to convert correlation value to DATE format

Hi All,

I need solution for below query, please respond.

I correlated date, and it is capturing date as "11022016" (actual date: 11/02/2016), But I have to pass the parameter value like 11/02/2016. Which approach is the best way?

You'll need to use the  SaveOffset and  SaveLen paramaters in your web_reg_save_param function.  Create 3 web_reg_save_param calls (one for each dd, mm and yyyy) then concatenate the three strings using the likes of sprintf.

This should give you an idea:


//get the h3 contents:  <h3>404 - Not found.</h3>    
web_reg_save_param("test_param", "LB=<h3>", "RB=</h3>", "ORD=1", LAST);  //caputures entire string:  404 - Not found    
//with a result of:  404 - Not found     To extract 'Not', we start at character 6 (value for SaveOffset) and store 3 chars (value for SaveLen).
web_reg_save_param("test_param_partial", "LB=<h3>", "RB=</h3>", "ORD=1", "SaveOffset=6", "SaveLen=3", LAST);


Action.c(22): Notify: Saving Parameter "test_param = 404 - Not found.".
Action.c(22): Notify: Saving Parameter "test_param_partial = Not".
