Date Issue

Hi All,
I have 3-4 date columns with not null and with null date values in mm/dd/yyyy format. I have used the below expression in mapper snap to format the date but facing the below issue. Could anyone suggest what correction is needed?

Date.parse($[‘Actual termination date’]!= null ? $[‘Actual termination date’].toString().substr(0,9) : $[‘Actual termination date’]).toLocaleDateString({“format”:“yyyy-MM-dd”})

“error”:
“Invalid timestamp format: 2022-04-20”

“reason”:
“Time should be in format “yyyy-[m]m-[d]d hh:mm:ss[.f…]”. The fractional seconds may be omitted. The leading zero for mm and dd may also be omitted.”

If you need to handle both scenarios(with null and without null date values), probably you will need first to check if ‘Actual termination date’ is not null then do the date parsing and formatting, otherwise send null(or any other value in case Actual termination date is null).

$.hasPath("['Actual termination date']") ? Date.parse($[‘Actual termination date’]).toLocaleDateString({“format”:“yyyy-MM-dd”}) : "any other value in case actual termination date is null"

Hi @Spiro_Taleski - Thanks, it doesn’t work when the whole column has null values.

failure:

“Not-a-number (NaN) does not have a method named: toLocaleDateString, found in: …-dd HH:mm:ss”}). Perhaps you meant: toString, toExponential, toPrecision, toFixed"

value:

“Handle the NaN value by providing a default value, for example: (Date.parse($[‘DateTo’]!= null ? $[‘DateTo’].toString().substr(0,10) : $[‘DateTo’]) || /* default */).toLocaleDateString({“format”:“yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss”})”

reason:

“Handle the NaN value by providing a default value, for example: (Date.parse($[‘DateTo’]!= null ? $[‘DateTo’].toString().substr(0,10) : $[‘DateTo’]) || /* default */).toLocaleDateString({“format”:“yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss”})”
