How to Convert Jun 17, 2019 12:00 AM to 06/17/2019 format?

I have tried using Date.parse() but it gives a NaN error.

Hi Shirali,

I have converted “Jun 17, 2019 12:00 AM” into “06/17/2019” .
This is solved in two ways in the Pipeline attached (ConvertDate_2019_09_30):

  • Solution with match expression, combined with slice() and replaceAll():

(match $date.slice(0,4){"Jan "=>“01/”,"Feb "=>“02/”,“Mar”=>“03/”,"Apr "=>“04/”,“May”=>“05/”,"Jun "=>“06/”,"Jul "=>“07/”,"Aug "=>“08/”,"Sep "=>“09/”,"Oct "=>“10/”,"Noe "=>“11/”,“Dec “=>“12/”,} + $date.slice(4,12).replaceAll(”, “,”/”))

  • Solution with combining multiple expressions ( startsWith(), .replaceAll(), slice() )
    PFA pipeline!

Thank you! This worked.


You can specify the format to be used for parsing by passing it as the second argument to Date.parse(). The toLocaleDateTimeString() method can also take an optional parameter where you can specify the format to use when turning the date into a string:

Date.parse("Jun 17, 2019 12:00 AM", "MMM dd, yyyy hh:mm a")
    .toLocaleDateTimeString({format: "MM/dd/YYYY"})
