Hey @Raj, GenericValue variables are basically Proprietary Variables of UiPath studio and they can store any type of data including text, numbers, dates, and arrays, and is particular to UiPath Studio. GenericValue variables are automatically converted to other types, in order to perform certain actions. However, it is important to use these types of variables carefully, as their conversion may not always be the correct one for your project. 

For example, in below shown screenshot, 1st variable "Int" has default value of 12 and variable type as GenericValue and 2nd variable "Str" has default value of "34". Now if you perform a numeric operation on these variables, both will act like numbers, while if you perform any string operation both will act as String.
