Hi @Trinaintynine 

 

This is a known issue with the excel connector. Either you setup that formula or you can just go to the excel sheet, select the entire column and convert the type from Date to simple text. https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Flow-Community-Blog/10-MS-Flow-hacks-troubleshoots-wor...

 

Hope this Helps!
