Not sure where to set this item

I have created a PowerApp within a SharePoint list that also uses Flow.  I keep getting an error about one of the values I'm passing to flow:


"An error occurred while validating input parameters: Microsoft.OData.ODataException: Cannot convert the literal '100,000,000' to the expected type 'Edm.Int32'. ---> "


I know the number needs to be formatted differently.  But, I have created these two dropdowns exactly the same.  So I am going crazy trying to figure out why one is working and one isn't.


When I look at the item I see this:

"new_intaketransitionornewresources": "100,000,000",
"new_intakelevelofrelationshipwithstakeholder": 100000000,


The one that works does not have quote marks around it and does not have commas.


But again they are both created exactly the same within SharePoint and in PowerApp and the data is the same going in "100,000,000" for both.


I even recreated the dropdown in Powerapps by copying the other one that works and still get same results?  I have looked at the card settings and I don't see anything there??  


So anyway just really confused on where I go to set things so that the Quote marks and commas don't appear when data is sent to Flow.

I created a compose action in my flow and I think I fixed this, although I still don't know why one dropdown automatically had this output and the other didn't??

Hi @Mattw112IG ,

As the error message said, in flow, the number with thousands separator can't be converted.

As you said, you can use the 'Compose' action to fix this issue.

Yes but I don't think you read my whole thing...


I have two dropdowns, both exactly same settings.  Both with exactly same data going in...


One comes through without commas and the other one comes through with quotes.


I have looked at both, recreated them, looked at card settings, etc.  can't figur eout what the difference is.


Yes I came up with the work around of using compose for the one that comes through with commas... but for my own sanity I would love to know why the other one comes through fine without the compose.  What am I missing, if I can do it with a setting rather than the compose that is ideal.
