Spreadsheet to List boolean upload

Hi all,

 

I am attempting to upload a spread into a list using flow.  There is a boolean column in the list and the value of the boolean field is in a column in the spreadsheet.  The thing is, when I attempt to add that column value to the flow, I only get the option to add a yes or no or a custom value (perhaps this is the solution).  On string columns, I get the option to add a column value from the table.  I want to do this with the boolean column too.  How do I do that?

Hi @shawn_fielding,

 

How do you format the Boolean column? Within expression in it or created a drop-down column?

Essentially by typing TRUE or FALSE in the spreadsheet, which should translate to the boolean option yes or no in the list.

The "yes" or "no" in the spreadsheet was just a test.  I realize that the field has to be TRUE or FALSE.  BUT this does not resolve the issue of the flow not allowing me to upload the column.  It only offers all yes or all no's.

Hi @shawn_fielding,

 

I think you could create a column with an expression that =IF(A2="yes",TRUE(),FALSE):

Oh, yes, I did that.  No problem.  The problem is in the flow, where I cannot choose to get the value from a column.  It will only take a static yes (true) or no (false) for the column in the flow.  See the flow.  Ignore the spreadsheet.

Hi @shawn_fielding,

 

Unfortunately, there is no way to select the value of the column which contains an expression.
