Flow with Sharepoint and Forms / Column-types in SP

Hi Community,

 

I have a short question about using Flow with Sharepoint and Forms. I created a SharePoint list with some columns (Type: Numbers).

 

So, the flow should work like this: Someone fill out the form --> flow create a item in a sharepointlist.

 

That is normally no problem, but i've seen that when a column in the SPlist is with the "type numbers", i can't match it in flow with the right forms field. (see picture)

When i change the Sp-Column to "Single Text line" it works. So that means it shows all fields from the forms.

How can i use a Number column in the SharePoint?

 

thanks for your help.

Hi @thomas_d,

 

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

 

Please add a Compose in your flow to save the number answer, the screenshot of the flow as below:

The flow would run successfully as below:

@thomas_d:

 

You might try entering the Form response "column" directly by going to the Expressions tab.

 

Your entry will look something like this:

body('Get_response_details')?['r012ea19261d9436b86d32bc6d96da3c2']
 
An easy way to find this reference in to select an expression and then select the particular form response from Dynamic properties. Then just copy what you need and paste it in.
 
I successfully added a number response from a Formk to a SharePoint number column using this technique.
 
If this solves your issue, please amrk your post as solved.

I have a survey where most of my questions need to be numbers for the output, do I need to do this for every question indvidually?

@George_Lego:

 

As opposed to using the compose action for the values returned for each question, you might consider using one of the conversion expressions like int() or float() when in the column in the create item action.  That might be a lot easier to implemented.  I haven't test this but it should work.

I think I got it working in a more uncovential way. I did not expect it to work but it did.  I used a text field to populate the reponse I wanted in a number field, so for example in the "Title" field I populated reponse for "Out of 10 how did I do?" then copy and pasted that response into the correct field.  No formula needed just cut and paste.  Worked like a charm. I even gone back to the SharePoint list and made changes and then to the form and made changes, it's still solid.  I was pleantly suprised.
