If Statement with Dynamic and static content

I have several if statements that check to see if a response is not empty and then put the value in a cell in a table in Excel. However I would like to add some static text to the beginning of the value when true 
 
Here is a working version of the if Statement with no static text.
 
if(not(empty(body('Get_response_details')?['r66cdfa6620fa4db4b8fced24da5554de'])),body('Get_response_details')?['r66cdfa6620fa4db4b8fced24da5554de'],'')
 
 I would like to add something like this but i cant seem to get the if statement to validate.
if(not(empty(body('Get_response_details')?['r66cdfa6620fa4db4b8fced24da5554de'])),'STATIC TEXT 'body('Get_response_details')?['r66cdfa6620fa4db4b8fced24da5554de'],'')

Hey there,  If I'm reading this correctly, I think you're missing an operator to combine your static and dynamic text.  Try this:

 

if(not(empty(body('Get_response_details')?['r66cdfa6620fa4db4b8fced24da5554de'])),concat('STATIC TEXT ', body('Get_response_details')?['r66cdfa6620fa4db4b8fced24da5554de']),'')

 

Keep us posted.

Hi @jmwinters ,

 

Following @edgonzales ’s suggestions, you could add Compose action and fill the response in Compose, so that we can directly determine whether the output of Compose is empty, like:

if(not(empty(outputs('Compose'))),concat('Text',outputs('Compose')),outputs('Compose'))

Feel free to let us know if you have any other questions.
