String being formatted as date

I have a string stored in dv (“1435-1-3”) that is used as a line id. I am trying to use this id in an Odata filter on a list rows action, but Power Automate keeps trying to format it as a date giving me a type mismatch (string to date). I have tried casting it as a string in the filter and sending it via a variable of string type and using the result but the Odata filter still wants it to be a date. 

Appreciate any thoughts

Hi there, 

 

Are you able to show us how you currently have it configured? The input and the output - and, let us know the ideal output. (Sounds like you want it back just as the same, without it turning into a date - just want to make sure. Where are you trying to store it?)
