Concatenate multiple form fields into formatted list in SharePoint item

Hello, I have multiple fields on a form that I would like to format to appear as a comma delineated list in my sharepoint item, or ideally as a block with each field entry on its own line. 

 

Here is my current flow with Create item pulling in MS form entries. For Course Name, I have 8 different fields from my form (user can potentially enter up to 8 courses at a time for reimbursement, and unfortunately they are all named the same thing in the form): https://imgur.com/Fx5oE61 

 

When the flow runs, this is how the field entries in Sharepoint are created. I'd like them separated by either a comma or a line break: https://imgur.com/w2ucU7j 

 

I understand how concatenate works in theory, but when I tried implementing this as an expression on my create item field, it did not like using the form responses in the expression - do I need to implement some kind of compose operation and then update item? I'd prefer to do this with all 8 course name fields at once, rather than 8 different compose or concatenate functions.

 

Thank you very much - this one has really stumped me and I'm still learning Power Automate.

Which column from the flow action you are referring to? If it is Course names, you can simply enter a comma in each of those form fields to generate comma-separated values.

@ChristianAbata @PrasadAthalye thanks to you both. I guess in the complexity I overlooked you can just separate with commas. 😂
