@CHAKRI 3011  here is the bot for weekday calculator

https://botstore.automationanywhere.com/bot/what-day-of-the-week

 

Tasks

  • Verifies that the value in the clipboard is a date
  • Task runs a script to calculate the day of the week from the date
  • Once the task is completed, sets the day of the week to the clipboard

Actions:
(1) Run 'What day of the week' Bot from your Bot using the 'Run task' command.
(2) However, please set the date on the clipboard in the following format in advance. Year.Month.Day
Example: 2020.03.08 or 2020.3.08 or 2020.03.8 or 2020.3.8

Outputs:
(1) Calculates the day of the week from the value set in the clipboard.
(2) Set the result on the clipboard.
(3) The result is returned as a numerical value.
・ Sunday: 1
・ Monday: 2
・ Tuesday: 3
・ Wednesday: 4
・ Thursday: 5
・ Friday: 6
・ Saturday: 7
(4) If an error occurs, sets 0 to the clipboard.

Use cases:
(1) It is effective to use when judging processing by day of the week as Automation Anywhere Enterprise V11.x does not have a function for calculating the day of the week from a date.
(2) Can be used to check the first business day or the last business day in a month.
(3) Holidays are not supported as the public holidays vary from country to country.

Other:
・ Supports leap years.
・ Works with any date from January 1, 1900 till December 31, 2100.
