I am have flow were I want to select the columns in a array variable (Append to Array Variable).


High Level view of flow:



The Append to Variable is in the Apply to each 3 component:



Thereafter, I have the Select component in order select the items from the Array Variable:
(I could have used create HTML table for this, but I need to format the HTML table in proper structure and I can only achieve this with the Select component, as you can see I have formatted the column width, colors etc).

Hi @ekarim2020 , thank you for your reply.


Unfortunately the video provided in the link didn't provide a solution to my problem.

But I needed to change my formula from: item(variables('HTML Table'))?['Task_Number'] -> item()?['Task_Number'].

So I needed to remove the parameters from the email.


Thanks again!
