Flow removes double quotes in Select action

I'm getting a very annoying error PowerAutomate.

Inside the flow I have a Select action as shown in the image, you can see the double quotes in the Map box. The flow works fine, but every time I open the flow to edit it, the double quotes are removed in all Select actions so I have to add them back again to be able to save the flow. I have several Select actions in the flow and it makes me waste a lot of time to have to add double to these actions every time I open the flow and make some edit.
I don't receive any error and the flow works well, it is just such a waste of time to have to add the double quotes time and time again.

Hi

It seems you are exploring the limits of a 'Select' action block, since you have found the way to get rid of JSON parsing automatically executed by the editor 😀

Did you try replacing all this stuff and using concat() based expression instead?

Hope this helps

I use Chrome. I tried it with Firefox, Safari and Edge but they all give the same error.

Hi!

Did you already try my suggestion?

concat('"<tr><td>',item()?['Title'], .... ,'</td></tr></br>"')

You can add all the columns you need (Role, Notes, etc) with the dynamic content menu, text shall be wrapped inside 'single quotes' and dynamic content wrapped inside commas.

Hope this helps

Hi @nanci 

 

Declare a compose action and set the value as " (Double quotes).

Map the output of the compose inside your select.

 

Thanks
