Get Approvers from a Secondary list using Get Items

Hello Community,
I need your help please!

I'm trying to build a flow where I'm getting my approvers from a secondary list, but only if they names match

I've tried to enter a Filter Query on the Get Items, but I get an error message




I've only ever used this function once, so I tried to replicate the same process but seem to fail,


Any assistance would be grateful,

Thank you in advance

@ClaireAllen In filter query you should use SharePoint internal column names. Please go to Project List setting and click on each column and see URL last part which will have your column internal name. You are passing Array values from flow.

Also people picker field do not work in filter query. you should use filter array here.

Please 'Thumbs Up' the posts that helped you and 'Mark as Solution' if my post answered your question.

Thank you, I will remove the Filter Query and add the Filter Array and see how I get on,
