OData filter column with space

I've been trying to filter out a column Ticket ID from excel and so far have had no luck with the syntext.  I've tried several different methods and none seem to be working.

 

  • Ticket ID
  • Ticket_ID
  • 'Ticket ID'
  • 'Ticket_ID'

Re: OData filter column with space

Hi @robevans 

 

I am not sure if the filter query can handle spaces

Your best bet will be to remove the space from the column name

Re: OData filter column with space

@robevans 

SharePoint OData filters in Flow usually use a columns internal name.  The easiest way to find out how to refer to a column in your filter is to create a Flow and add a Get Items action (and no filter).  Scroll through the output after you run the Flow - you'll need to refer to your column in the same manner as it appears in the output.  Spaces are usually replaced wit x00200_ but you'll need to check to be sure.  I have noticed that SharePoint online now ususally simply removes the space for the internal name now (didn't in the past).

In my example, the Column name is Ticket ID but I need to refer to the column as TicketID.

Hi @robevans,

 

Currently, the Excel connector does not support to put the column name with space as a filter condition. 

But you can use the Filter array action to get the value of Excel, for example:Annotation 2019-08-19 163809.png
