Convert Text to Record received from Power Automate

Hello together,

 

I've created a Power Automate Flow which delivers a text string to Power Apps.

I intention was to convert this text into a table:

{Activity:"A";Date:"2021-02-13";End:"15:00";Start:""};
{Activity:"B";Date:"2021-02-13";End:"16:00";Start:""}

If I copy the text and paste it into a collection wrappeb by a Table() function it works fine.

Do you have any idea why it does not work with direct reference to the variable where the text is stored in?

 

Best regards

Florian

To return a table of results from Power Automate to Power Apps you need to use the HTTP Response action instead of the Respond to Power Apps action.  Then you can return the table as a JSON array, which can be stored in a Power Apps collection and loaded into a table.  There is no way to use the table function to build a table using variables.  the only downside to using the HTTP Response action is that it requires a premium license.
