Data Types specify the type of data a variable can hold or store, all variables defined must be assigned with one of the data types.
Commonly used datatypes in UiPath are :
- Generic Value
- Date and Time
There are a lot of datatypes available apart from the above and can be accessed by selecting “Browse for Types” Option available.
Generic Variable is a data type available in only the UiPath and is capable of storing any kind of data such as text, numbers, arrays and dates.
Text variable can store only sting data type in it, it can be used to store text and alphanumeric.
Boolean variable can store only two possible values, true or false in it. They are very useful while making decisions to control the flow.
Number variable can store only int data type in it and are used to store numeric values.
Array variable type helps us in storing multiple values of same type in one variable.
It allows us to create a array of strings , array of numbers and so on.
Date and Time
Date and time variables allows us to store the information of Dates and Times.
This can be helpful while working with date manipulations.
Datetable variables enables us to store the information similar to a excel or database with data being arranged as rows and columns.
The dataTables are widely used in many of the automation processes as we deal with a lot of data during the business automations.
