The value #date can not be converted to "Text"

Hi there,

 

I am trying to get a call record list from our VOIP Provider.

The given details are:

 

Name In Type Required Description

datequerystring(date)trueYYYY-MM-DD
pagequeryinteger(int32)falsePage of results to fetch.
per_pagequeryinteger(int32)falseNumber of results to return per page.

 

I tried to fetch it with the following:

 

= Json.Document(Web.Contents("https://api.placetel.de/v2/call_detail_records", [Headers=[Authorization="xxxx", date= DateTime.Date(DateTime.LocalNow()),today= date,
year = Number.ToText(Date.Year(today)),
month = Text.PadStart(Number.ToText(Date.Month(today)),2,"0"),
day = Text.PadStart(Number.ToText(Date.Day(today)),2,"0"),
mydate = year&"-"&month&"-"&day, page="10", per_page="50"]]))

 

The solution is:

Expression.Error: The value "#date(2020, 3, 20)" cannot be converted to the type "Text".
Details:
Value=20.03.2020
Type=[Type]

 

Any help for me?

Thanks a lot!

For dates, you should use Date.ToText instead of Number.ToText function.
