Reminder Flow 2 days before due Date.



I want to build a Flow wich reminds my Co-Workers 2 days before the Due date. 


The way it works is that it first gets a Data from a Connector.
This Data will be created into a Excel File in my Sharepoint Document Library. 


In the Excel File there is a Row called 'Date', and i want that my Flow sends an Email 2 days before the Due Date .


This is what i did so far  






Conditions : 



This is my Excel Table : 



Containing alot of Rows and Tables, with specific Users and all. 


I tried to run the Flow but it keeps on running on forever. 


any Idea what i can do to make the Reminder working propely. 

It should run everyday at morning to remind all my Co Workers. 


Thanks alot in advance ! 🙂

Dear partner,

The reason could be you have not converted the string.

when flow is reading the date from excel cell, it takeas a value as string like 

44381 which is 16-06-2021
To solve this i will initialize 3 variables like below

Hi @mobashee 


Thanks alot for the Reply. 


I tried your solution as follows my flow is looking like this right now : 


So first off in my Flow in need to Filter the Date Row because it contains Fields wich have Dates in it and Fields wich are empty. 

and I cant really Filter them in my Excel because the Excel will be created everyday from the Connector


So the first step i did Initialize the Variables as you said so. 
Then i List the Rows and Filter the Excel Row wich contains the Dates








But always getting this Error :

So my Flow is lookin pretty Wild and im sure that i messed up something with the Flow, trying to do the reminder thing 2 days before the due date. 

Sorry im really a flow beginner in this regard .


Thanks alot for taking your time and reading my mess
