Escape Single quote from string

Hi All,

I am creating folders in SharePoint using ms flows.  flowimage1.png

it works perfectly when "Output" does not have "single quote" in that. when there is single quote let say Output value is "CustomName'Test" it fails because of quote. 


how can I escape that single quote. I don't want to replace that single quote with blank or any other value.

Re: Escape Single quote from string

Hello @vaishalivyas1 

Please, have a look at this post by @PieterVeenstra on handling apostrophes and single quotes in Flow:

Basically, you should insert a "\" character before the quote character, with the following expression: replace(outputs(),””,’\”’)

Hope it helps!
