where I am trying to select the Force Majeure Exception value using a compose card and the expression:

variables('Terms')['Force Majeure Exception']


However I get this error:


which states that Force Majeure Exception doesn't exist and that the available properties include Force Majeure Exception.

In fact, this happens with any numeric value in the JSON, however the text values can be selected perfectly well.


Any ideas?

Hi @Stevenfayers ,


It's working fine at my end with your expression.


1- Initialized Json variable.



2- Compose


Inputs :  variables('Terms')['Force Majeure Exception']


Output :



You might be facing some different issue.

I finally solved my own issue. 


I was copy/pasting "Force Majeure Exception" from a spreadsheet when creating the compose expression. Unfortunately this action copied the UTF-8 encoding for the space between Force and Majeure and Majeure and Exception (hex C2 A0 for UTF-8 non-breaking space). This didn't match against the JSON which contained a normal space (hex 20).  I only found this out by exporting the solution, opening the JSON definition of the Flow in a hex editor and looking at it, effectively under a microscope. I'm posting this here in case anyone else suffers from hours of pain trying to resolve a similar issue.
