compare text that contains simple quote

Hi everyone,

 

With the function "get items", i want to get some datas in a sharepoint list as you can see below

It work's perfectly when my variable "indicateur" doesn't have any simple quote -> '   

But if there is a simple quote inside, it doesn't work.

For example, with these chains :

  • Taux d'appels
  • Taux d'impayés

I searched on forums and and I found theses solutions : 

I tried to use a \ before the simple quote. I tried to use two simples quotes -> '' 

Both didn't work 😞 

Someone knows a solution ?

 

Thanks for reading,

Sorry for my bad english

Re: compare text that contains simple quote

HI @Anonymous,

 

Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

 

I have made a test and the issue is confirmed on my side. The simple quote (') could not be wrapped within a single quotes (''), the single quotation mark is the only way to wrap string literals, if there is a simple quote (') within the single quotes, it would cause conflicts.

 

I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently, if you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

More details about the single quotation mark operator, please check the following article:

Best regards,

Kris

Re: compare text that contains simple quote

Ok... That's what I thought Smiley Sad

I'm going to rename my indicators (literals without simple quote) ! 

Thanks a lot for your time !! Smiley Wink
