This article offers conversion tips and code templates for working with yunIO in Power Automate.

Leading Zeros #

Data in SAP often uses leading zeros to maintain a 10 character convention, e.g., KUNNR, MATNR, COST_CTR, etc. yunIO also requires leading zeros for these parameters.

The following code adds leading zeros to a variable strValue:
concat(substring('0000000000', 0, sub(10,length(variables('strValue')))), variables('strValue'))

Date Conversion #

When working with yunIO dates use the SAP format “yyyyMMdd”.
The following code converts German (“dd.MM.yyyy”) and US (“MM/dd/yyyy”) dates to the SAP date format (“yyyyMMdd”) for variable strDate:

    substring(variables('strDate'), 6, 4),

    if(contains(variables('strDate'), '/'),
            substring(variables('strDate'), 0, 2),
            substring(variables('strDate'), 3, 2)
            substring(variables('strDate'), 3, 2),
            substring(variables('strDate'), 0, 2)

Syntax in Different Language Settings #

The Power Apps coding syntax is dependent on the configured language settings. This impacts:

  • Arguments in function calls
  • Fields in a record
  • Records in a table

For more information, see Microsoft: Formula separators and chaining operator.

Example: the English ClearCollect(SAPData,yunIO_1.ReadCSKT()); becomes ClearCollect(SAPData;yunIO_1.ReadCSKT()) for German language users.
