UTC to Excel date

I am trying to convert UTC to the date string that Excel produces so I can tell if an email should be sent or not on a particular day each month.

 

I have seen several post that would take the date from excel and convert it to a local time, but I was hoping to do it the other way around.

Is there a string that can do this?

 

Thanks

This is what I ended up using.

 

In the compose 2 section, I was able to use this.

 

div(sub(ticks(body('Convert_time_zone')), ticks('1899-12-30')), 864000000000)
 
And it worked in giving me the number I was looking for.  However, although it gave me the number, I assume it was in a format that I couldn't use.  I decided to use the Format Number function to put the number into a Text?? format.
 
So far so good.
