Hi  @nmccool 

 

Try to do the int coversions inside two compose flow steps for both response details. Finally pass these two compose outputs in your multiply expression.

Hi @nmccool,

 

Could you please share an example output of the response?

Do these values of quanity and cost column have dots?

then i changed to a float, and it worked on the fo=irst cost, so i went all the way down, and i got the errorserror 2.JPG

the cost will, as it will be dollars and cents, but it will not have a dollar sign, see some examples of the cost and qtycost qty.JPG

Hi @nmccool,

 

If it has a dot, you can use the split() function to process the value, for example:

The 13.46 is the value I get from the excel table. If I want to get the integer part 13, I need to convert it into String first, then use the split to get the array [13,46], then get the first member split()[0] to get 13, then convert the String "13" into an integer.

int(split(string(outputs('Compose_2')),'.')[0])

i dont see how this will work.  The numbers i have to convert arent known until someone updates Microsoft Form i have linked to SharePoint; thats where the info is coming from.  Looks like you are converting info already known.  

Hi @nmccool,

 

Yes, the value in my example processed is known, but this is just a method, you can use the method to process the field get from Excel.
