Hi ! 


I'm n ew in power automate and i try to isolate a variable part of an email. so i use an thml to text, i've succeeded to isolate a fix part of the email : 



And then i want to isolate a variables part of the email with this :



But i have the error : 

Impossible de traiter les expressions de langage de gabarit dans les entrées d'action « Isoler_le_commentaire » à la ligne « 1 » et à la colonne « 17684 » : « Impossible d'évaluer l'expression de langage de gabarit « split(split(outputs('JoinText'),'«')[1],'»')[0] », car l'index de tableau « 1 » est en dehors des limites (0, 0) du tableau. Pour les détails d'utilisation, consultez ».


i actually understand that [1] is out of the limit (0,0) of the array but i don't know more.


Can you help me ?

Hello @JorisR ,

what value contains the JoinText output? Just guessing based on the error message (as I don't speak French), the output doesn't contain the « character, therefore, it returns only a single item in an array = there's nothing on index 0.

Also I'm not sure if you can combine multiple split(...) in an expression. Split(...) expects a string as an input, but if you combine two split(...) together then only the inner one will work with a string and turn it into an array, the outer split(...) would then have an array as the input = an error?
