Export Multiple Multiselects

Hello all, I need to export Sharepoint Online List to CSV file with Flow.

 

 

 

 

Here is my list:

 

+------------------------------+---------------------------------------------+-------------------------+
| Filename (String)            | Product (Multiselect)                       | User Type (Multiselect) |
+------------------------------+---------------------------------------------+-------------------------+
|                              |                                             |                         |
+------------------------------+---------------------------------------------+-------------------------+
| Settings_m1_h.asp            | MP_ENG_01; MP_ENG_02; MP_BMO_01; MP_GOC_01; | 105; 106                |
+------------------------------+---------------------------------------------+-------------------------+
| settings_m1.asp              | MP_BMO_01; MP_ING_01;                       | 105; 106                |
+------------------------------+---------------------------------------------+-------------------------+
| settings_p1.asp              | MP_ENG_01; MP_ENG_02; MP_VIS_01;            | 105; 106; 107           |
+------------------------------+---------------------------------------------+-------------------------+
|                              | MP_GOC_01; MP_BMO_01                        | 105                     |
+------------------------------+---------------------------------------------+-------------------------+
| /main/transaction_l_2_cd.asp | MP_GOC_01                                   | 105                     |
+------------------------------+---------------------------------------------+-------------------------+

+------------------------------+---------------------------------------------+-------------------------+
| /main/transaction_l_2_cd.asp | MP_GOC_01                                   | 105                     |
+------------------------------+---------------------------------------------+-------------------------+

 

 

 

 

Here is my flow:

Here is my actual output file:

 

+------------------------------+-----------------------+-------------------------+
| Filename (String)            | Product (Multiselect) | User Type (Multiselect) |
+------------------------------+-----------------------+-------------------------+
|                              | []                    | []                      |
+------------------------------+-----------------------+-------------------------+
| Settings_m1_h.asp            | @odata[Product]       | @odata[User Type]       |
+------------------------------+-----------------------+-------------------------+
| settings_m1.asp              | @odata[Product]       | @odata[User Type]       |
+------------------------------+-----------------------+-------------------------+
| settings_p1.asp              | @odata[Product]       | @odata[User Type]       |
+------------------------------+-----------------------+-------------------------+
|                              | @odata[Product]       | @odata[User Type]       |
+------------------------------+-----------------------+-------------------------+
| /main/transaction_l_2_cd.asp | @odata[Product]       | @odata[User Type]       |
+------------------------------+-----------------------+-------------------------+

@odata[Product] is a long string which looks like this:

 

Spoiler
[{"@odata.type":"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference","Id":0,"Value":"MP_ENG_01"},{"@odata.type":"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference","Id":1,"Value":"MP_ENG_02"},{"@odata.type":"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference","Id":4,"Value":"MP_BMO_01"},{"@odata.type":"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference","Id":5,"Value":"MP_GOC_01"},{"@odata.type":"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference","Id":6,"Value":"MP_ING_01"},{"@odata.type":"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference","Id":7,"Value":"MP_STI_01"},{"@odata.type":"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference","Id":9,"Value":"MP_USB_01"},{"@odata.type":"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference","Id":10,"Value":"MP_UMB_01"},{"@odata.type":"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference","Id":11,"Value":"MP_VIS_01"},{"@odata.type":"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference","Id":12,"Value":"MP_VIS_03"}]

@odata[User Type] is a long string which looks like this:

 

 

Spoiler
[{"@odata.type":"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference","Id":0,"Value":"105"},{"@odata.type":"#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference","Id":1,"Value":"106"}]

I tried to iterate through each multiselect etc but it didn't work. How do I generate desired CSV file?

Re: Export Multiple Multiselects

Hi @kpoxo6op ,

 

I have made a test on my side and couldn't find a way to create a csv table with Multiselects column, I'm afraid that there is no any easy way to achieve the requirement in microsoft flow currently.

 

Best regards,

Alice

Re: Export Multiple Multiselects

Thanks for investigating for me Alice, maybe you can point me tho the right direction.

The List I mentioned lives on other team's Sharepoint Online page.

 

What I need to do is:

1. login to Sharepoint Online

2. read the List programmatically into a string/object/file on schedule

3. do some text transformation with the result

4. generate a file with the transformed text

 

Maybe there is a PowerShell module for that?
