Create Item Sharepoint Connector Error

I have a flow that creates an item in a sharepoint list, where numbers entered into a form will make calculations in a new column. However the "require that this column contains information" is off. However, if left blank or unanswered on the form, my flow breaks, and I get this notification from the flow. 


OpenApiOperationParameterTypeConversionFailed. The 'inputs.parameters' of workflow operation 'Create_item' of type 'OpenApiConnection' is not valid. Error details: Input parameter 'item/QualityofClientRelationship' is required to be of type 'Number/double'. The runtime value '""' to be converted doesn't have the expected format 'Number/double'.
Is there any way around this? The calculated columns use sum and count, so I can't make an "if" case where it equals 0 because it will skew my data. 
Please advise. Thanks.

Hi  @christianh2o ,


Maybe you could consider adding a Condition Action to execute another branch if the specified field in the MS Forms is empty.


1.Here is my Form.


2. Here is my Flow.
