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

My solution. It's not pretty, but it works.

 

A new list with the date 01.01.1900

chrome_2018-06-28_10-18-31.png

 

Get Element und Variable and Set variable. The variable receives a number of days, 43056 (for example).

That number of days minus 2 (I don't know why)

chrome_2018-06-28_10-16-38.png

 

Finally we add the number of days to the date 01.01.1900

This works

Hi @Anonymous,

 

I have made a test on my side and the issue is conformed on my side.

 

The output value of the date would be 43203, 43206 with string type as you said.

 

As an alternative way,you could take a try to save the excel file in your onedrive for business instead of sharepoint to achieve your needs.

 

I have made a test on my side, if you save the excel file in your onedrive for business, the flow would run successfully to insert the item with date to your sharepoint list.

 

The flow as screenshot below:

The flow would run successfully as below:

Please let me know if your problem could be solved.

 

Best regards,

Alice

Thanks for the answers. I was out of the office all week. Today I'll test if it works

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

 

Best regards,
