I am trying to create a flow that takes the Expiry date from the list and sends an email to outlook. This is my list:

enter image description here

This is my flow:

enter image description here

I have added this string (Should send a reminder when 1 day is left for the expiry date):

FormatDateTime(addDays(utcNow('yyyy-MM-dd'), +1)

When I run my flow I always get an error:

enter image description here

Could you help me identify why is there this error informing that:

"The expression "expire date eq '2021-11-18'" is not valid. Creating query failed. clientRequestId: c45f4aad-2999-4ece-a4f5-d56490163c7a serviceRequestId: c45f4aad-2999-4ece-a4f5-d56490163c7a"
