Date from Excel to SPList


Hello everyone!

I have searched the forum a lot and tried a lot of things without success (compose, formatDateTime, StartDate...).

I need to import from an excel (Business) date (Eckendtermin) to a SP list. I only have the typical 43203, 43206... numbers.
I don't want to compare it to other dates. Just import it. I show you some pictures of my flow.

Thank you very much in advance

Hi @Anonymous,


When getting date from Excel Business, I am having the same issue. The date from Excel will return as 43349, etc. I haven’t found a way to convert the number to a date then save it into SharePoint list.


Then I tried with the Excel, the dates are returned properly and they are able to be saved to Excel without issues.


Please try to use Excel instead of Excel Online, I assume that it will work as expected.



Best regards,

Mabel Mao

Thank you very much Mabel Mao for your reply. Unfortunately I am not allowed to use Onedrive in this Flow and it must be imported directly into a List.


I wrote this question once and it was published twice and I didn't know how to delete one of them.  I get another answer here, but unfortunately I can't use it.
