OneDrive Convert Excel to PDF: output in wrong regional settings

Hi all,


i have an issue with the Ondrive convert within flow. Converting from Excel to pdf ist working, but the output has wrong regional settings. My Excel documents are created with german language and regional settings. Numbers and date have format 1.234,56 and  20.08.2020 which will be translated by the converter to 1,234.56 and 08/20/20. What can i do to get correct output format?


Thank you all for help

Hi @daniel72,


Could you please share screenshots of your Flow configuration?


you could use list all rows present in a table action to extract all rows of the Excel, then use create an HTML table action to convert the format of date, then create an HTML file, then convert the HTML file into PDF file.

Hi Lin Tu,


thanks you for your help. The excel file has no table, its just a formular which is filled by user action.


Meanwhile, i have been looking around and tested the PDF Konverter from encodian. Within  this converter i have the option to change regional seetings (culturename) from en-US to de-DE and it works fine.

It would be nice to have  the onedrive PDF converter also with this option.


Thanks again
