InputBox value Issue to Flow

Good Afternoon,


I previously had a flow that would run and pull data from my inputbox that was just a # such as 123456000 however, I've since changed the value in that field to include a hyphen such as 123456-000 and my formula no longer works.


I had it setup as: 




I'd imagine its not working because of the .text after clientIDinputbox and the number now includes a hyphen, any way around this?


The flow is spitting the hyphenated number into a SQL table but it fails before that and says: invalid parameter for clientidinputbox

Unfortunately I do not have a solution.  I am actually hoping to do what you described.  I have a label in my PowerApp that gives the number of days since an item was submitted.  This, of course, is not created with the OnSubmit because the 'Created' date field has not yet been set.  And, it will changed daily, (obviously) to increase by +1. 

I would like this DaysInQueue (PowerApps Label)  number to be updated in my SharePoint list daily without any interaction within the app from the user or administrator.  If this is similar to what you did initially, can you explain how you were able to update your database with the flow?


Thank you, in advance, for your help.

Hi @tianaranjo I'm having the flow run based on a button press, you may want to look at this document here:


Which shows you how to setup a flow based on a schedule, that seems like it will accomplish what you are needing.

Have you tried the passing the parameter using the Value() function?




@Anonymous I tried that but it just returns the value as a "1" in the flow for some reason. Any other suggestions?
