Failed flow

My flow is failing due to some invalud character and I do not know which character is throwing it off.

 

Does anyone know whether there are characters that flows will not accept?

 

 
Error message:  
status: 400,
  message: Invalid text value.\n\nA text field contains invalid data. Please check the value and try again.\r\nclientRequestId: c8128b18-0816-4895-9957-386582420732\r\nserviceRequestId: c8128b18-0816-4895-9957-386582420732

 

Thanks,

Chase

Re: Failed flow

@RezaDorrani  it fails at the "How does/could it effect them" question. The data that is in this field is: It takes time to review documents. If you are looking for something specific it is at times difficult to find. When SPOC is creating complete packages it takes longer. If PQA or an audit is looking for a doc it could be a finding if its not easily identified.

"How does/could it effect them" what type of column is this in SharePoint?

Hi @Chase_Walters 

 

So an empty description field value sent from Flow works

 

Then try just going line by line in the description field itself and see where it fails

Hi @Chase_Walters ,

 

It seems that there is very little effective information provided in the error message, and it is difficult to determine which field configuration is not as expected.

Perhaps you could use the data in Flow run history-Create item-Body to create a new item in the SharePoint list to see if there is more valid information to get the cause of the error.
