Phone number null

I'm trying to report data from Form to Sharepoint but I have a problem with the "mobile number" field.

This field is optional and when I have no data inside it the flow goes into error and shows me the following message:
"The 'inputs.parameters' of workflow operation' Create_element 'of type' OpenApiConnection 'is not valid. Error details: Input parameter' item / field_13 'is required to be of type' Number / double '. The runtime value'" " 'to be converted doesn't have the expected format' Number / double '. "

What can I do to solve the problem??

Thank you

Hi @Giovanni90 ,


If you are trying to capture mobile number in the Form and save to SharePoint, then it's best to use a field type of "Single Line Text" instead of Number in the SharePoint list.


If you don't want to change the SharePoint column type to text, then you can add a validation on the MS Form, so that users only enter Numbers in the form field.


For the mobile number field, select the ellipses and click on restrictions, then select restriction to Number.

This way users can't just enter a blank space, which reduces errors with validations in the form.


Hope you find this helpful! 


Kind Regards,
