escape quote

Hi all I need to remove a quote character from a filename i am writiging and I tried using the @replace however the issue I encoutnered is it uses single quotes as a dileneator.   How do I replace a single quote?  Does anyone know of a specific escape character I need to use?

 

 

this is what I had:

"@replace(outputs('filename'),''','')"

Hi @andrewr,

 

You need to use @replace(outputs('subj'), '''', '')

 

So this is my flow. Email subject contains quotes. Remove the quotes and send email again.
