Find GUID from Description



Using Dataverse


I have an email that comes in with a Description.


The table is C_Location

The field is Description


How, in a flow, would I obtain the GUID based off the description that comes in?


Thank you!

Hi @Elzoolio ,


Do you want to extract a field value from an email and then look up a corresponding record in Dataverse?

I have made a simple test for your reference.


trim(split(split(replace(replace(outputs('Html_to_text')?['body'],decodeUriComponent('%0A'),''),' ',''),'delimiter1')[1],'delimiter2')[0])

Hi @v-yujincui-msft ,


I’ve parsed the email and set the individual lines using Compose for the Description.

It can pull that from the without a problem and I have the content I need. They are typically city names prefaced with some information and I utilize this dynamic value elsewhere in the flow to populate a new row.

XXX-Sacramento is an example.


What I would like to do is look at the table(C_Location) that Description comes from and obtain the GUID for that specific record(XXX-Sacramento). From the C_Location table there is a row with a description XXX-Sacramento.

Obtain the GUID.


Thanks for the reply!
