Expression help - required to be of type 'Number/double'.

Happy Thursday! Power Automate Community. 

 

Getting the following error message:

'item/Contact_x0020_Number' is required to be of type 'Number/double'. 

Flow1.PNGFlow.PNG

 

Contact Number is a Number type in SharePoint. What is the correct Expression to format 'Number/double'.

 

I created a MS Form, with a flow that will submit the response to a SharePoint list.

 

Thank you so much in advance.

Hello @oappdev 

 

You want to wrap the dynamic value inside the expression float()

For context:

Int = Integer

(1,2,3,4,5)

 

Double = Floating point numbers (Decimals)

(1.5, 5.66, 8.55)

 

To use expressions on dynamic content follow this:

Click expression tab > type float()

Click back over to dynamic content tab and inside the ( ) select the Form answer value > click OK

Hello,

 

I have a similar problem with one of my flows but I couldn't solve it using the function FLOAT ().
