Creating HTML table to send in email, error message states needs to be an Array

@abm Good afternoon, 

I am working on another Flow, and I am stuck at initializing a variable to create an HTML table that will be inserted into an email.  The information is being retrieved from Forms input.  The error message I keep receiving at the step of Initialize Variable is: 

 

"BadRequest. The variable 'ResponseBody' of type 'Array' cannot be initialized or updated with value '{ "webhookId": "94ee29f4-76f1-4a61-b8ed-90b4dce4fb96", "eventType": "ResponseAdded", "resourceData": { "formId": "7Skwd8LWC0iloigcbTAjXoS-7jtm3rZKqMlA83tHJ2hUMlU5RFZKR0tJNDhSMEFDMzhZWE0xRk5SSy4u", "responseId": 3 }, "eventTime": "2020-06-10T22:08:09.6034709Z" }' of type 'Object'. The variable 'ResponseBody' only supports values of types 'Array'."

 

I have tried multiple different options and I continue to receive a similar message. 

 

Any guidance and/or assistance is greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Hi again

As far as I understand, your current HTML table is displaying this info in both columns of its single row, right?

[{“English”: “1”,”Math”:”2”,”Science”:”1”,”Social Studies”:”1”,”Arts”:”1”,”Health and fitness”: “1”,”CTE”:”1”,”Electives”: “1”,”Total credits waived”:”10”}]

 

THe point is, this is an array with a single element (an object) inside, all subjects are atributes, credits being their corresponding values.

 

So if you wanna show Subjects in one column, credits in the other, you need to manipulate your current “Create HTML table” input, transform it into an array with N object elements, being N the nr of Subjects.

 

[

{“GradRequrement”: “English”, “#_of_credits_waived”: “1”},

{“GradRequrement”:”Math”, “#_of_credits_waived”: ”2”},

{“GradRequrement”:”Science” ”, “#_of_credits_waived”:”1”},

{“GradRequrement”:”Social Studies”, “#_of_credits_waived”:”1”},

{“GradRequrement”:”Arts”, “#_of_credits_waived”:”1”},

{“GradRequrement”:”Health and fitness”, “#_of_credits_waived”: “1”},

{“GradRequrement”:”CTE”, “#_of_credits_waived”:”1”},

{“GradRequrement”:”Electives”, “#_of_credits_waived”: “1”},

{“GradRequrement”:”Total credits waived”, “#_of_credits_waived”:”10”}

]

 

I would suggest the following strategy:

1.- Transform your input

2.- Configure ‘Create HTML Table’ Column input as ‘Automatic’, and the table structure will be according to your expectations.

3.- Take care of the style (bordes, colors, etc)

 

In order to start with step 1, we need to clarify the following:

a) is the Subjects list always the same? I believe so, since the source seems to be a Microsoft Forms survey, right? Please confirm this point

b) did you assign 'Select' output as the 'Create HTML table' 'From' input?

Thanx!

Hi @Tif ,

 

Please try the following configuration:

54.PNG

You can replace HeaderA and HeaderB with the field names you need.

 

The value of the first field is the question name, and the value of the second field is the response. Use objects in the data to group them and store them as items in the array variable.

Hi @Tif ,

 

It seems that I provide the same method as @efialttes . The basic principle is that we can make an array to store the data that needs to be displayed in the HTML table.

Because the object returned by the form response, we need to create an array that meets the requirements, and the elements in the array need to be object. The question name is taken as one attribute, and the answer as another attribute.

 

Hope that makes sense.

Hi!

The error says you have a data type mismatch. You declared your variable type as 'Array', but you are assigning it an Object. Did you try to switch 'Initialize variable' type from Array to Object?

Or, you need your variable as an Array with one single element of type object? If so, you can leave array value empty in your 'Initialize variable', next add an 'Append to array' action block, select your variable's name and assign as its value the object.

 

Anyway, I assume you already shared tons of context related info with @abm in another thread, so I guess he can figure out better what you want to achieve

Sorry for interfering

Hi @Tif

 

Thanks @efialttes 

 

The error is related to data type. Change the data type or another option is map the final output in a Compose and finally map the compose output in your email.

@efialttes Thanks so very much for your response!  No apologies necessary, you were not interfering at all.  Your fix worked fantastically!  Thanks so very much!

 

Now that the Flow runs to the end, I can see that the HTML table formatting is not right.  I need it to be a two-column table, and I am ending up with a two-row table with no table lines. 

 

Any assistance is greatly appreciated!

@efialttes thank you for the references, those are fantastic!  I am still unable to fix the issue with the HTML table, as I'm not sure what I'm missing - I'm still fairly new at this and learning the language of Flow.  Here is what I have so far:

Hi again

I assume you have a 'Send an email' somewhere at the bottom of your Flow, right?

Did you assign 'FormatTableLines' output to 'Send an email' body input?

 

BTW, your 'Create HTML table' design looks confusing to me... which value did you assign to 'Create HTML table' 'Column' input? Not 100% sure, but I would expect either 'Automatic' or 'Custom' value assigned there. Also the Header-Value table looks half empty (I mean no Values assigned, I am afraid)

Hope this helps

 

Did I make your day? If so, mark my response as 'Solution' !!!

También escribo sobre Power Automate en este Blog y en Twitter

@efialttes Thank you for your response.  

Yes - I have a Send An Email as the last action and the email is being sent/functioning appropriately. 

 

Yes - I assigned FormatTableLines output to the Email:

W-6.jpg

 

I am using Custom value assigned to the Create HTML Table, but I'm not sure how or what to use for the Header Value.  

 

I need my table to end up looking like this:

w-7.jpg

 

I definitely need the text to be blue, and the "TOTAL CREDITS WAIVED" to be in red text.  

 

Thanks again for helping me with this!  I do appreciate it so very much!

@efialttes Thanks again for your response and ongoing assistance. I think I am beginning to understand, but it's still somewhat confusing to me.  

 

To answer your questions:

a. Yes, the Subject will always be the same as the information is coming from a Form that is being utilized by staff only.

b. Yes, I did assign "Select" output as the "Create HTML table" "From" input. 

 

Hi @Tif ,

 

Please try the following configuration:

Flow_AcceptSolution.png

 

2.- Read the resources provided by @v-bacao-msft and try to implement by yourself the improvements on your current flow to overcome your new challenge. IF you don't succeed, please consider to open a new thread for your next question, following the policy: 'One Question, one post'. This way you have more chances to attrack attention for superusers that are seeking for unanswered topics.

3.- (OPTIONAL) Click on 'Thumbs up' in any answer you found valuable... or even in all of them 😉

This structured approach not only enhances comprehension but also equips learners with tangible skills that can be applied immediately in their professional endeavors. By focusing on key areas, the program has been shortened from 12 weeks to seven, saving valuable time without sacrificing quality. Special thanks go to Microsoft Power Platform advocates, April Dunnam and Renee Noble who shared their expertise and to Power Up Program champs who contributed with feedback and reviews over the last 1+ year to make this significant improvement.   Easy access to a comprehensive Development Environment In addition, the program now offers simplified and instant access to a comprehensive development environment for Power Up Program learners to explore and experiment with the Power Platform in a sandbox environment, fostering creativity and innovation.     Introducing App-In-A-Day (AIAD) workshops for Power Up learners As an added incentive, participants of the Microsoft Power Up Program can now sign up for partner-led “App in a Day” virtual workshops. These workshops, conducted by industry experts and Microsoft partners, provide invaluable insights and practical guidance to supplement the core curriculum.

In addition to being a Super User, Drew is also a User Group leader and a Microsoft MVP. His contributions to our Super User sessions and to the new SUIT program are always welcome--as well as his sense of humor and fun-loving way of sharing what he knows with others.   When Drew is not solving problems and authoring solutions, he's busy overseeing the Solution Architecture team at HBS, specializing in application architecture and business solution strategy--something he's been doing for over 30 years. We are grateful for Drew and the amazing way he has used his talent and skills to help so many others in the Community. If you are part of the SUIT program, you got to hear some great tips from Drew at the first SUIT session--and we know he still has much more to share!You can find him in the Community and on LinkedIn. Thank you for all you do, Drew!

We are so grateful for the daily difference they make in the Community already and know they will keep staying engaged and excited for all that will happen this year.   How to Spot a Super User in the Community:Have you ever written a post or asked for help in the Community and had it answered by a user with the Super User icon next to their name? It means you have found the actual, real-life superheroes of the Power Platform Community! Super Users are our heroes because of the way they consistently make a difference in the Community. Our amazing Super Users help keep the Community a safe place by flagging spam and letting the Community Managers know about issues. They also make the Community a great place to find answers, because they are often the first to offer solutions and get clarity on questions. Finally, Super Users share valuable insights on ways to keep the Community growing, engaging, and looking ahead!We are honored to reveal the new badges for this season of Super Users!
