Convert excel numerical dates to date MS FLOW

Hello,
I use a FLOW that retrieves the rows in an array and converts them into JSON.
My concern is that the date of Excel is in numerical format and not date:

I found on the forums a piece of solution: formatDateTime (adddays ('12 -30-1899 ', int (outputs (body (' List_the_lines_in_a_table ')? [' Value '] [' Request Date (DT) '] )), 'yyyy-MM-dd),' yyyy-MM-dd ')

 

I tried to integrate this solution and I have an error:

Do you have an idea ?

Hey @Kevint13 

 

Can you try this: 

 

The format for the add days should be yyyy-MM-dd and so you need to modify the expression to have the date as 1899-12-29 and then the rest of the expression. 

 

Hope this Helps!
