OData error for select a Sharepoint element

I am trying to retrieve all the elements of a Sharepoint list that are not older than a day. Unfortunately, I get a mistake every time I try. I've read many help pages, but everywhere it looks a little different. Once eq stands, then Eq or gt and Qt.
Can someone help me with this specific query and also tell you where there is a good page with examples of how to use OData correctly on Microsoft Flow - by default with SharePoint lists?
Thank you very much for your help.


This is my OData Selection:
Created Gt addDays(utcnow('yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ssZ'),-2)

inspired by:
I also tried it with lowercase letters.

My alst Error is: (in German)

"message": "Der Ausdruck \"Created Gt addDays(utcnow('yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ssZ'),-2)\" ist ungültig.\r\nclientRequestId: d3b15755-bba2-476c-98e0-873dd63880e2\r\nserviceRequestId: f9ddbd9e-30dd-0000-6139-a25e4c10a351"

Re: OData error for select a Sharepoint element



Making the following changes should resolve the issue:

1) Change Gt to gt - needs to be ower case

2) Add single quotes on either side of your expression - see my screen shot below.

Hi @MartinZim,


Have your problem been solved refer to @ScottShearer's solution?


You could also take a try with expression below:

Created gt '@{addDays(utcnow('yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm:ssZ'),-2)}'
