Hi Sarem,

You can use the TBox Evaluation Tool module to compare dates with Tosca.

Please note that you will have to enter dates in between hashes (as shown in the below screenshot) so the Evaluation tool will recognize your input values as dates.

This needs to be a KB immediately! So important. Also time evaluations would work as well.

What order are the fields in ?

E.G. is #02.08.2016# The 8th of february, or the 2nd of August ?

Totally depends on your formatting, Youc could control using following:

1. Settings->TBox->Dynamic temporal expressions

2. Control it by Test configuration parameters

3. You can generate using below formula


Eg: {DATE[02.08.2016][+1y-3M-1d][dd/MM/yyyy]}  will give you "01.05.2017"

I want to find whether a date is Sunday or not. I have bufferd the date and am trying to use the ADAY to find out if its Sunday or not . First i used the belowin TC Set Buffer to convert to TOSCA date format.


Then i use the following to find out what day is it


But it tells me that 23.08.2018 cannot be interpreted as date. I played with other format too but it just does not like any format.

Although if i just use {ADAY[{DATE[][][]}]} it does give me the day.

Can anybody please help me on this.

I have to compare two dates, one is system Date & the other buffered one.

For e.g., Date 1 = 30-DEC-19 & sys Date= 21-JUN-19 but when I am comparing, the verification is failing. 
#30-DEC-19 # > #21-JUN-19 # is evaluated to 'false'

Can anyone help on this ?

Hi Nikita, Convert the buffered date to Target format and then compare(see below)

TBox Set Buffer

d1 = 30-Dec-19

d2 = {CALC[Text(""""{B[d1]}"""",""""MM/dd/yyyy"""")]}

TBox Evaluation Tool

Expression  : #{B[d2]}#>#{DATE[][][MM/dd/yyyy]}#
