Expand Query is posting null to a HTML Table

I'm trying to create an html table that accesses info from a related entity in Dynamics 365

I've got a List Rows step with FetchXML and an Expand Query - Expand Query is relationshipname($select=description,name).

 

This goes to a Select step with Dynamic Content from the List Rows step - when I run a test the Inputs are showing this:

    "a_140843db21f4ea11a81500224801c8ab.description": "SOME INFO1",
    "a_140843db21f4ea11a81500224801c8ab.name": "SOME INFO2",
 
but the Outputs are showing
  {
    "Name"null,
    "Description"null
  }
 
where I would have expected to see SOME INFO2 as the name and SOME INFO1 as the description.
 
any ideas how I access this information from the inputs properly?
thanks,

Hi Manish, 

I managed to get this working - on the Select step, instead of using the Dynamic content, I wrote the following expression:

item()?['a_140843db21f4ea11a81500224801c8ab.name']

item()?['a_140843db21f4ea11a81500224801c8ab.description']

 

and it worked perfectly

Hi @johnandrews1987 ,

 

Could you share your output of Select and List rows. Ideally select action is used for mapping / changing the name to your desired name before using it further. 

Thanks
