Char Function

I am building a flow and need to remove new line characters from a string. I have read that the way to do this is by using substitute and the Char(10) to return \n. However, the char function is no longer available after a recent patch. What is the substitute? Surely we are not left without the ability to convert ASCII representations to string.

Char(10) still appears to work in Studio Version of 3.20081.24

What version are you using? Can you elaborate on your exact pattern for the Flow.

Thanks for the quick reply. I have found a workaround, which is to use decodeUriComponent and encodeUriComponent and remove the URI representation of the new line this way. However, I am still interested in knowing about Char. 


I do not know how to identify my PowerPlatform version, I am using the webclient under 


Here is a screen shot of the error I am getting when using Char. I am simply setting a string variable using Char(10) as the value.
