Dates from Excel Online

Hi All.

 

I ma having trouble with dates from Excel into Flow being converted to integer.

 

I simply want to use the matching record's date of birth in the traditional dd/mm/yyyy format but keep getting an integer when listing rows from excel.

 

Can anyone help please?

 

Thanks,

 

Mike.

@Mike1962 you need to format it using a formatdateTime expression:

formatDateTime(addDays('1900-01-01', add(int(items('Apply_to_each')?['Date']),-2)), 'dd/MM/yyyy')

where in my example 'Date' is the column in Excel.
