Create HTML Table from Array of Strings

I read from a list column, whos value was 3 sets of JSON key pairs.  I split the text into an array and tried to create an HTML table but received an error message.  Does anyone who of a way to make this work?  Seems like I need to pass an array of objects, now strings. createHTML.PNG

Hi @rarroyo1 

 

You are getting this error because the values inside the array is of type string and the Create HTML action requires key-value pairs.
Please follow the below screenshot and parse the returned response to get the values in a separate array and then pass it to the the Create HTML action.
 
In the Parse JSON function, pass the array that you have received as a string values.
Expression used to get the keys:
Split(items('Apply_to_each'),'"')[3]
Split(items('Apply_to_each'),'"')[7]
3 and 7 corresponds to the index of the values.MicrosoftTeams-image (64).png

 

 

Hope this Helps!
