ERROR IN POWER FLOW APPROVAL PROCESS OUTPUT

Hi,

 

There is error in power flow approval process output. From SharePoint I have created a approval flow, in the flow I used dynamics to fetch data from SharePoint list. Columns with alphabet captured as it is, without error but numeric fields outputs are not matching.

 

Example:

  1. I have SharePoint list column value as 2,00,000 with commas but when i capture this in approval process, output is 200000 without comma.
  2. Another column I have percentage value as 15.20%, this output in approval flow is 0.15200000000 !!!

When I seek support in the community, they referred to use formals to convert it. I have tried few but not working.

 

I think this is bug, when the alphabets columns display as it is from SharePoint, why there is error in numeric fields? why should i used extra steps (expression) to convert it? Please fix this so that it will be time saving for every one.

Hi @klakshmi10 ,

 

What you see in the SharePoint list is that the numbers have been specially processed into the specified format. This is the function provided when the column is created in the SharePoint list, but the actual storage format is number.

 

The value obtained in Flow is the value stored internally, and it does not contain any format. If you want to apply these formats, you may need to use some methods to format these values.
