Re: Need to remove Bullet symbol from string

Hi @gunjan,

 

Could you please share a bit more your issue?

Could you please share an sample of the Bullet symbol of your list item?

Further, do you want to re move the • from your SharePoint list item?

 

I have created a SharePoint list on my side and the data structure of it as below:26.JPG

Note: The Description column is a Single line of text type column, which contains Bullet symbol (•).

 

If you want to remove the Bullet Symbol (•) from above Description column, I have made a test on my side and please take a try with the following workaround:

  • Add a "When an item is created" trigger, specify Site Address and List Name.
  • Add a "Update item" action, the Description field set to following formula:
replace(triggerBody()?['Description'],'•','')

The flow works successfully as below:25.JPG

Best regards,

Kris
