Format numbers function from sharepoint list

Hello, i am trying to display a number from a sharepoint list as a currency format in the approval workflow. I tried to use the new format numbers process in flow but it does not get the dynamic selection from the sharepoint list.

Re: Format numbers function from sharepoint list

 

Hi @clarkzara ,

 

Basically, when configuring an action, it will automatically match Dynamic content according to the type. If you can't get it, it may be that the type does not match.

 

We can search directly in Search box first. If it is still not available, we can use Compose to get Dynamic content first. Compose can receive all data types.

Hi @clarkzara ,

 

I think it may be that the type of the field and the parameter type expected by the format number action are inconsistent, so you cannot get Dynamic content.

You can use Compose to get Dynamic content, and then fill the output of Compose in this action.

Please take a try and feel free to let us know if it not work. And it is best to provide some screenshot of the flow configuration so that we could check the issue easily.

Re: Format numbers function from sharepoint list

i was wondering why it will work if it was manually trigger. It was able to format the number i inputted in the manual trigger. However, if i do the trigger when a new item in the sharepoint list, it will only show the ListID. It does not show as a dynamic content the field under the sharepoint list?
