Absolute numbers?

Hello,

How do I get the absolute value of a number?

Example:

sub(10,11)

Which equals -1. I need to get the absolute value of 1 from this statement. 
How can this be accomplished?
Thank you

Re: Absolute numbers?

Hi @ericonline,

 

Unfortunately, there is no ABS function exist in Power Automate, as a workaround, you can determine it is whether less than 0, if it is, convert it to a string, then remove the "-" character, then convert it into an integer, for example:Annotation 2019-12-10 131824.png
