Format number from calculated column

Hi all, need your help with Power Automate to format a number from a caculated column. 

In a SharePoint list I calculate a sum of other columns. The total as shown in the list is correct.

In the flow I cannot simply get dynamic field D17 because the output is shown as 57.8300000000000 

So I added Number format as action and compose. Still, the output is not what I need. 


What am I doing wrong? Run history says it cannot format the number because it expects the first parameter to be an exact number but the value is of type string. Hope there is help out there 🙂

I figured it out.

 

In the compose action I added an Expression:  Float(triggerBody()?['D17'])

(D17 is the name of the column)

 

Job done.
