List rows present in a table (Dates)

Hi there,

 

I'm having an issue with the 'List rows present in a table' action in Microsoft Flow.

 

I'm trying to use a condition that compares the date in each row to the current date + 90 days. However, when Flow lists the rows present in the table, it is bringing the date through as an excel number. 

 

I've tried changing the date to ISO format, and have tried changing the format of the column multiple times but no matter what I attempt I can't get the date to come through.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers

Hi @rapidjuice 

 

This is a known limitation where dates in excel will return in numeric format

 

One approach can be to crate a numeric column in excel and set number based on date value in following format

yyyymmdd

 

then in Flow you can compare agianst this number column

Hi @v-bacao-msft 

 

Any chance I could have your expert assistance again ?!

 

I am trying to collate all of the rows returned from my condition into a HTML table, but because my compose actions are within the apply to each loop, I am forced to add the HTML table to this also or I can not use the output.
