Adddays not working as expected

Hello - I have this exact syntax working in another flow (though adjusted to the appropriate 'Apply to each' variable) but it's not working in a different Flow. The error says it's getting value NULL, but I don't see anything wrong with the expression. Can someone help me take a look?


Expression use:

NOTE: The "Apply_to_each_27" is correct, it's from another value earlier in the flow.


Here's the error I receive:

Hi @ryan2k 


items('Apply_to_each_27')?[FirstDeliveryDatec'] - this is returning null

hence adddays will fail 



check value in 




add a compose action before your vtam start2 action 

and for compose action set value as 



you can see if it has data

Hi @ryan2k ,


I'm afraid that the expression"Apply_to_each_27" is wrong since it is under the Apply to each 28.

Apply_to_each_28 is wrapped inside of Apply_to_each_27, so that shouldn't be the issue - it's pulling that value without a problem.


I'll try to test those compose actions to see the vaule of the adddays syntax as suggested.
