Flow Add Row to Table Excel Date Error

Hello all,

I have a flow that updates an Excel table when an email is received, that was working until this week when it began failing and I started receiving the following error message: "InvalidArgument" and "The argument is invalid or missing or has an incorrect format". The error pops up in the OUTPUTS Body Section and refers to "date""2018-04-05T20:43:32". The INPUT Date section shows the correct date (timezone), "4/5/2018 12:22 PM", derived from the CONVERT TIME ZONE action. I've also tried other functions and the OUTLOOK Received Time output from the previous step, but no success. I've tried changing the format of the cell where the information is going to be inserted from Date, to General, and to Text, but none of them work either. I'm still pretty new to all of this, so any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Re: Flow Add Row to Table Excel Date Error

Hi @rcherry,

 

Could you please share a screenshot of your issue?

Do you add rows into your Excel file (whose data formatted as a table) stored in your SharePoint library?

Further, could you please show more detail about the error message?

 

I have made a test on my side and don't have the issue that you mentioned. My flow's configuration as below:14.JPG

The flow works successfully as below:15.JPG

 

Please check if you have set a specific Date format for the Date column within your Excel table, if yes, please consider convert the Received Time from the received email into the specific Date format that you specified within your Excel table using the "Convert time zone" action.

 

In addition, please also consider take a try to re-create your flow and try again to check if the issue is solved.

 

Best regards,

Kris
