How to remove parts of a text?

I have a GET request that pulls data from Project Online Tasks. My issue is that it returns the data as JSON.

In PowerApps I was able to remove the first 9 characters and the last 3 to just get 55. Is there a way to do that in Flow?

Hi @Mgodby,

 

Yes, there are substring() function you can use to get the "55".

Or use the method provided by @abm, after parse JSON, will get "55h" string, then use replace() function to remove "h", for example: replace('55h', 'h', '')
