How to filter SharePoint after you got the list.

Good Day All!!!!

I need some help please any.

I'm trying to filter a SharePoint List, I have already used the (Get Items) filter to pull the items in the SharePoint list I want.

Now I want to filter it more by only pulling the Column Name and the Value of that Column if it is 'eq' to No.

And then put the Column and the value 'No' into a table so I can send it in a email.

 

If anyone can help me please. If more information is needed please let me know.

Happy Flowing!!!!

Please see my example below.  As suggested by @rsaikrishna I am using a filter query.  I am filtering on a yes/no column.  They evaluate to true or false.  Please note the single quotes in the filter query.  Also, when referencing a column in the filter query, you need to use the columns internal name which may be different the the display name (the name you see).  I assume that you want a single email - that's why I use the create HTML table action.  Please let me know if you have additional questions.

In the SharePoint list, create a view with desired columns. Then, in the Power Automate's Get Items action, you can select the view name in "Limit Columns by View" field. This will restrict the columns to the view.

 

Also, in the Filter Query, you can mention filter

<Column Name>  eq 'No'

 

Give a try and post your questions here.

Hi thank you for getting back to me so fast. 

This is what my Flow demo looks like and my SharePoint list.

As you can see in the flow that I have already filtered which works to get the right items, but I would like to tack out only the column name that has a item value of No. And place the column name and value into a table like you did in your solution.

 

Pease can you go through the pictures and if anymore information is need please let me know.

Thank you for all your help!!!!
