    I'm new to the Mac world but have been successful in creating a few Automator workflows to simplify certain tasks.

    However, I'm stuck on the flowing; I'd like to create a workflow that searches a particular folder for items created 30 days before today's date and the delete them.

    I'm assuming I need to create a variable of today's date and then subtract 30 days from it and so on. Haven't been able to figure this out.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks for any help you can provide.
