File can not be output with a specified period

I am developing with PowerApps and Flow.
I was able to output CSV using flow.
There are dates such as registration date in CSV. I want to output only data for the period specified by PowerApps to CSV for the registration date
Could you tell me how to become a method or a reference site?


I want to output data with the period specified in the following Flow.

Thank you for your consideration.

Re: File can not be output with a specified period

Hi @sheep

Do you only want to output data for a specified period (registration date) passed from an app?

If you only want to output data for a specified period (registration date) passed from an app, you should filter the results the "Get rows" action returned based on the specific period (passed from an app) before the "Create CSV Table" action.

I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:

My Excel table data structure as below:6.JPG

The Flow's configuration as below:7.JPG



Within "Filter array" action, From set to output of "Get rows" action. Then click "Edit in advanced mode", type the following formula:

@equals(formatDateTime(item()?['Due_x0020_Date'], 'mm/dd/yyyy'), formatDateTime(outputs('PassedDateValue'), 'mm/dd/yyyy'))

On your side, you should type:

@equals(formatDateTime(item()?['Registration_x0020_Date'], 'mm/dd/yyyy'), formatDateTime(outputs('PassedDateValue'), 'mm/dd/yyyy'))

Note: The 'Due_x0020_Date' represents the Due Date column in my Excel table, the 'PassedDateValue' represents the "Compose" action.


App's configuration as below:11.JPG

The flow works successfully as below:

Re: File can not be output with a specified period

hi @v-xida-msft ,

Thank you. I'm happy to reply.


1. Acquire data for one day
2. Add date
3. Acquire data after 1 day
Repeat this. It seems that you can get data for the specified period.

However, it is difficult to combine data and it is struggling.
In "flow" it is difficult to join arrays.
I'll try to do my best.


Thank you very much.


Best regards,
