Power Automate Desktop Read Excel Cell with Date Issue

Hello everyone,

 

I ran into an annoying issue today when I discovered that after a recent update(maybe) when Power Automate Desktop reads a date, like below, instead of reading just the date, it unnecessarily attaches the time to it as well. 

 

The main issue is that I need the program to read as is. Meaning, if the cell has 05/04/2022, it needs to read as such instead of attaching time to it as well.

The dates are sourced from a data table with the first date in the column set as =Today() and the remaining dates are set as prior cell + 1.

How do I get Power Automate to stop attaching dates?

You can “change datetime to text” as custom format M/d/yyyy
