Flow workflow if and Empty expression

Hi All,

I'm building a flow workflow that pushes answers from a Microsoft form into a sharepoint list (based on the template)

It works well when pushing answers straighforward into sharepoint list.

But, as I have some answers that can be null in the form, I would like to push a value in case of null answer ("Not answered")

I'm trying to use the expressions tab in flow.

So, on the sharepoint part of the workflow, where I link answers to fields of sharepoint list, i'm trying to put this:


if(empty(body('Get_response_details')?['r0bd8b43a180c454da240a1e81d15d2ad'], "Not Answered",body('Get_response_details')?['r0bd8b43a180c454da240a1e81d15d2ad'])
For me, "if" is waiting for true or false, the empty(body('Get_response_details')?['r0bd8b43a180c454da240a1e81d15d2ad']
return True, so the "not answered" value should be used, else, it gets the value of body('Get_response_details')?['r0bd8b43a180c454da240a1e81d15d2ad']
But I cannot validate the query because of "invalid query" error. Any ideas ?
Thanks for your help.
