Getting validation error

Trying to get a google sheet row to be created in Airtable.

Here is the error:


Validation failed for 1 parameter(s).

  • Invalid number in parameter ‘fldO7Fvs4DjZ2R5lM’.

I looked this up in ChatGPT and I found the column there is an error. It is a timestamp record which is automatically created by Google Sheets. I tried to reformat the column to just a number as it is in a text format but I still get the error.

This seems like a simple fix but I just can’t get my head around it.

Any help?

Welcome to the Make community!

What does Timestamp variable from Sheets contain?

You might need to use the parseDate function to convert it into a timestamp (numeric value).

If you need further assistance, please provide the following:

Please provide the output bundles of the Sheets module by running the scenario (or get from the scenario History tab), then click the white speech bubble on the top-right of each module and select “Download input/output bundles”.


Save each bundle contents in your text editor as a bundle.txt file, and upload it here into this discussion thread.

Uploading them here will look like this:

module-1-input-bundle.txt (12.3 KB)
module-1-output-bundle.txt (12.3 KB)


If you are unable to upload files on this forum, alternatively you can paste the formatted bundles in this manner:

  • Either add three backticks ``` before and after the code, like this:

    input/output bundle content goes here

  • Or use the format code button in the editor:

Providing the input/output bundles will allow others to replicate what is going on in the scenario even if they do not use the external service.

This will allow others to better assist you. Thanks!

I was impatient and started from scratch. I now get a successful execution but no data appears in my Airtable once a new google sheet row is created. The output bundle is below
