Odata Filter Null

Does anyone know how to use an odata filter on a SharePoint Get Items action to filter out items with a null value in a text/string column?


I have tried: text_x0020_field ne ''


But that does not seem to work - what is the correct approach?

Hi all,

This seems to consistently work if I include multiple variations of null as the filter query.

Also if this doesn't work and you don't care about the flow taking an extra 10-60 seconds, then you can try using the Filter array action after the Get items, put the "value" dynamic content from Get items into the *From field and put the following into the advanced mode formula field:


@not(or(equals(item()?['Insert Column Here'], ''), equals(item()?['Insert Column Here'], 'null'), equals(item()?['Insert Column Here'], null)))
