Scheduled based flow with "An identifier was expected at position" error

Hi there,

 

I did my research with people with this error but the solution seems to be turning off "Explicit column selection" in advance settings on PowerApps. I tried that and it didn't work (didn't think it would work since it's not a trigger).

 

This is my flow layout:

and for List records odata filter, I used:

 

startswith(creo_entrytime, 8/04/2020)

 

 

Anyways, I'm wondering if anyone has a work around or solution to this?

 

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for replying @Jcook.


I found out that the issue was the format, it had to be the exactly the same format as the one fetched from CDS:

formatDateTime(utcNow(),'yyyy-MM-ddT12:00:00Z')

 

then I used greater than (gt) and less than (lt) odata to filter out the date - that seems to work.

Hello @MrEdward 

 

Startswith can only be used in a text field.

if your field is a text field. Than add single quotes around your date in your filter
