I have a workflow where I want to get the length of a string (Eg: TE00000284) to use it in further cases.
I tried using fn_Length(TE00000284) in 'Convert Value' Action and tried to store the length in number variable and
TE00000284 has been passed in single line text variable.
But, unfortunately it's throwing an error stating
"Error parsing value. Value 'fn_Length(TE00000284)' is not compatible with the selected output variable type Number (double)."
Please help me with the error...
Solved! Go to Solution.
I tried this myself and could not find the error. Are you using a hardcoded string to check the length (TE00000284) or are you checking the length of the string that is stored in a textbox? Can you try using a string variable to store the count?
I have tried this quite some time before as well and it does give the correct result. Could you please copy paste your actions (images) to show what exactly you are doing?
This is the workflow I'm using and dont know where I went wrong..
I took two variables as below
I have taken the string value from current item and assigned it to Sting variable.
In Convert Value I used the function fn_Length(String) to get length of string passed and stored the value in Number variable. And tried to log the value.
But I'm getting the same error as mentioned above... Please help me in resolving this issue.
It seems a bit odd, I tried very quickly creating the same workflow you showed above (just to be sure if i am not seeing anything) and there was nothing wrong in it. The only thing I can think of what is the data type of the "Sequence Number" field? Could you try the following (this may not solve your issue but can help you troubleshoot your issue further)
1] Get details from soem other field other than sequence number shown above, see if it works ..
2] Use trim with the length function so that spaces dont get counted.
Further it looks very straightforward and not sure what exactly could be wrong other than the field sequence number as thats the only unknown in this scenario. Try this and let me know if it works.
It is working fine now. I really found my mistake where I used fn_Length(String) instead of fn-Length(String) Hence it was throwing an error.
Now it is working fine ...
esta tambien es una manera en la que pude optener el tamaño de una cadena que tienen numeros sin que me presentara error, poniendo antes de la variable o el control "" y concatenarlo con un +
