Filter a query by Yes/No column not working

Hi everyone,

 

Hope you are having a good day!

 

I am creating a flow that will get items from a sharepoint list with this filter on the query:

 

I've tried both,

ApprovalID eq <integervariable> and Cancelled eq 'true' 

 

@yashag2255 hope you can help.
@RobElliott 

and

 

ApprovalID eq <integervariable> and Cancelled eq true 

 

but neither seems to work since the query gets the item with the correct integer value but does not take into consideration the second query filter I've used, the 'Cancelled' column is a Yes/No Column in Sharepoint.

 

I'm patching the column "Approved" in Powerapps and after the patch, the do until of my flow stops even though there is no "Cancelled" eq true.

Re: Filter a query by Yes/No column not working

@CarloPrincipe filter queries don't like Yes/No columns. You can put the ApprovalID in to the filter query but then you'll need a condition to check for Cancelled is equal to true.

Re: Filter a query by Yes/No column not working

I have successfull used a filter query in a Get Items action.  The column being tested for is: Details.  When I wanted to bring in items whose value of Details = No, my filter query is:  

Details eq 'false'

The key is the use of single quotes around either 'true' or 'false'

Re: Filter a query by Yes/No column not working

When its a Yes/No field you want to filter query it for when its true you use the not equal to operator "ne" and not "eq".

 

Example1: Cancelled ne false

 

Example2: ApprovalID eq <integervariable> and Cancelled ne false

Thanks, @JoshuaGWilson, this absolutely worked.

 

It's also absolutely crazy that the equality operator is broken. 😬
