Get Items - filter on a SharePoint list date column (multiple words)

Trying to create a filter in flow for a SP list where if the date of Archive 2 is in the past, the flow works


'Archive_x0020_2' lt 'addDays(utcNow(),+0,'yyyy-MM-dd')'


This is what I currently have and I'm getting a invalid query.  This syntax looks to be correct but I can't find any examples online where the column is multiple words so I went with how SP sees the column name


The query is not valid.
clientRequestId: e9bd9ff2-aa15-43a1-835d-f51cb30d26d3
serviceRequestId: e9bd9ff2-aa15-43a1-835d-f51cb30d26d3

Get rid of the single quotes around 'Archive_x0020_2' for starters.

Assuming your expression is an expression and not just written into the query?

Did removing the single quotes help?



Different error message.  So you can't filter on a calculated column?


The field 'Archive_x0020_2' of type 'Calculated' cannot be used in the query filter expression.
