"Insert Row to Sheets" adds "'" to cell

My flow is working except towards the last step.  When I use "Insert Row" to a connected Google Sheets, the string variable gets inputted into the new row cell.  


This string variable contains: =IMPORTRANGE("@{outputs('Clean_URL')}","Sheet1!A1:A12")




However, when I review the output in the Sheet, the string variable is successfully outputted as above, with a "'" (apostrophe).





Therefore the command isn't executed.


Troubleshooting I've done:

  • I have used the raw output of "=IMPORTRANGE("@{outputs('Clean_URL')}","Sheet1!A1:A12")" in the cell and ran the flow.  A new row is still created with the additional ' at the beginning.
  • I have manually tested the command and it works in sheets.
  • I have used Zapier to test the flow and it works.


The issue I'm noticing is the "Insert Row" (Google Sheets) action is generating the single apostrophe.  Any ideas on what I could do?

Looks like it is occurring from the Google sheets side that is adding the apostrophe.

If the manual way of removing them is this then maybe as a programmatic way you can use Google script as mentioned in this direct link to the post here.
