Is there a particular reason you need to do this using VBscript?  You can accomplish the same thing with built in actions.  Just retireve the current Date and Time into a variable and then run the convert Datetime to text action with a custom format.

Thanks @Pstork1  ,Sure I will try that 

 

Also, can you help me with one more issue,?

I have a Macro Excel file in which I have few buttons to click, I am using  "Click UI element in window" action to click that button but the issue is if the name of the document(excel file) changes then this action fails .

do you have a solution for that?

I would post that as a different question.  Off the top of my head I don't have a solution for that.
