MS Form submission with Power Automate error on INVALID TEXT VALUE

Hello y'all,

 

I have MS Form connected with a Power Automate workflow and one of my requests produced this error.  I looked into it and I believe it's an issue with the character count on one of the Form fields.  Anything over 254 character resulted in an error.  I changed the Form field to a "Long Answer" (4,000 characters) but this still doesn't work.  HELP, PLEASE!error01.jpgerror02.jpgerror03.jpg

Hi @Albertjp,


You screenshot suggests that the error occurs at the Create item - request submitted full workflow action.

 

Are you by any chance creation a SharePoint list item in that action. If so, did you also check if the target column of the SharePoint list allows more than 255 characters?

OH, wow.  I didn't know there were character limits on the SharePoint.  I selected Multiple Lines instead of a Single Line.  That worked!  Thank you!
