Convert Strings from Excel to Integer

Hi Community, Please, I need help with my current flow.

1. I have a flow that is getting a cell value from Excel online file

2. I want to use condition action to check if the value is greater than a particular number


a. I have initialized a string variable with the value retrieved from the Excel sheet

b. I used Compose action to convert the string to integer, and

c. I use a condition action to check if this output is greater than a number of not.


When I checked the output, I always see that "0" is been retrieving a number.


I will appreciate if anyone here can help resolve this.

The value I am pulling is a calculated number. could this be the reason why it's returning zero "0"?


If Yes, How can I make it return the real value?
