Getting Forms responses into SharePoint lists

Hello, 

 

We have a form with 5 sections, 10 questions per section. Every answer is composed from picking a number from 1 to 5. We're trying to bring that numbers as a sum into a SharePoint list and we have to sum each section so basically we will have a total score for each section. The problem is that the answers in Forms are automatically formatted as string and we can't use a formula like =sum(x,y..). Another issue we are facing is that even though we could manage to convert each answer to an int format, it would take too long to do that for each answer and also, there is no formula for adding more than 2 numbers.

That is an example of what we tried.

You have a few routes. You can Initialize a Variable from each response and set the type to Integer, or you can use a third party connector such as Parserr (demo ink). For more on variables, see the Use data operations with Power Automate documentation

Well we've tried to initialize each variable for each response but giving the fact that we have 50 questions, it's not very reliable to create 50 variables. Also, from what I can see Parserr let's you extract data from emails, Excel, CSV and PDF attachments. This won't satisfy our needs because the data we're trying to use are directly from Microsoft Forms. Thank you though for taking time to answer.
