    If you can upgrade to 9.10 then I'd recommend using the Data Generator tool. For 9.9 there is an older extension called the Date Math tool which is available on the Parasoft Marketplace .

    Thanks for this info, is there any other way where we can script to read the current date from datasource

    I prefer solutions that don't involve scripting. However, if you prefer to write a script then simply write code in your script to return the current date. For example, if you use Groovy then you can write code like what you see here.

    I added the plug in for date math tool as adivsed, but unable to get any input/output from it. Is there any documentation on how to use this plug in?

    The file you download from the Parasoft Marketplace is named com.parasoft.soavirt.tool.datemath-1.0.0-dist.zip. Do you see the DateMathTool.pdf file included in that zip file?
