Create items handling null

Hi

 

I have a flow, this was working until yesterday.

 

Take data from an excel table, and create rows in a sharepoint list.

 

Some date fields has null values, normally solved by:

 

if(less(length(items('Apply_to_each_2')?['LastInventoryDate']),1),null,items('Apply_to_each_2')?['LastInventoryDate'])

This is not working anymore ?

 

I have tried if empty, length and equal   no luck ?

 

coalesce(items('Apply_to_each_2')?['LastInventoryDate'],'')  
 
Only return null

 

Regards

 

Tony

Hi @Thansson ,

 

There are spaces in 'Last inventory date', please modify the column name in expression.

if(equals(items('Apply_to_each_2')?['Last inventory date'],''),null,items('Apply_to_each_2')?['Last inventory date'])

 

Best regards,

@Thansson Which error do you get? Since you only mention that 'it doesn't work anymore'. This will greatly help us to solve your problem!

Hi @Tjan 

 

I have not changed any thing, both excel field and sharepoint field is a date field, I use ISO 8601 in get rows.

Hi @Thansson ,

 

Just like @Tjan mentioned, we need more details about your question, such as error of flow.

You can also try this firstly.

if(equals(items('Apply_to_each_2')?['LastInventoryDate'],null),null,items('Apply_to_each_2')?['LastInventoryDate'])

 

 

Best regards,

Hi @v-mengmli-msft 

 

Your code is running without failure, but all fields are empty, also these containing a date:

Failure when using:

 

if(less(length(items('Apply_to_each_2')?['LastInventoryDate']),1),null,items('Apply_to_each_2')?['LastInventoryDate'])

@Thansson  Ah! Please check the output 'List Rows present in table'. There might be other column values that are null (other than the ones you've taken into account already). 

Hi @Thansson ,

 

The error shows length can't be used on value which is null. So, you can replace it with equals.

I think the empty maybe caused by the incorrect date format.

Could you please show one LastInventoryDate of outputs of List rows in a table?

 

Best regards,

Rimmon

Hi here input and output, when using :

if(equals(items('Apply_to_each_2')?['LastInventoryDate'],null),null,items('Apply_to_each_2')?['LastInventoryDate'])

 

Input:

Thansson_2-1718956856923.png

Output:

Thansson_3-1718956905190.png

 

 

Output is missing the field number 6 (LastInventoryDate)

From Sharepoint:

Hi @Thansson ,

 

Please show the LastInventoryDate of outputs of List rows in a table.

vmengmlimsft_0-1718958366292.png

 

Outputs of SP will hide column with blank value.

Please try this and test again.

 

if(equals(items('Apply_to_each_2')?['LastInventoryDate'],''),null,items('Apply_to_each_2')?['LastInventoryDate'])

if(equals(items('Apply_to_each_2')?['LastInventoryDate'],''),null,items('Apply_to_each_2')?['LastInventoryDate'])

 

 

Still provide empty field, no failure

Hi @v-mengmli-msft 

 

Yes you are right, they have changed the column name in SAP, I didn't see that.

 

Sorry, and thank you
