values in a multi choice field ID=-1

hi 

 

i have a multi choice field ( example choice of countries) in a list

The view of the field is visible normally with multiple values like 

 

jpr23_1-1685005276458.png

 

But if  i display the field by powerautomate , it seams like only one value and not multiple

jpr23_0-1685005180838.png

 

So i cannot read the individual values to do a treatment ....

 

Does somebody knows how to do , to use a select function for example to read each values ?

 

 

thanks

Hi there, 


You can get that value, and use split() (splitting on ; ), and that will turn it into an array where you can access the individual values.

Hi @jpr23 ,

 

Just like @Rhiassuring mentioned here, the split function is totally able to do this for you, to convert this text value to a new array so that you can use in following steps.

 

I am just providing you a simple demo so that you may figure out the solution more quickly.

 

Here I have an array named choice and it has same value as yours. Below is the formula you can use to get such an array:

HenWang_0-1685082461262.png

HenWang_1-1685082481574.png

 

split(variables('choice')[0]?['Value'],';')

 

As for you, you just need to replace the variable dynamic content with the correct dynamic content that holds this choice value from your side.

 

Afterwards, you can use [0],[1],[2],,,and so on to capture any specific item inside this array.

 

Best Regards,

Hen Wang

Thanks for all your answers... this is the final solution ( my gift !)

 

Base on the different help you gave me this is my solution …

 

In  fact, i have a choice filed for countries names , but in some case there was only one string value (fill up  with a string values separeted by semi-colums : "FR";DE";"IT";"US")

Like

jpr23_0-1685709071178.png

 

 

 

and in an another case  , a real array of values.

 

[

  {

    "@odata.type": "#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference",

    "Id": 1,

    "Value": "FR"

  },

  {

    "@odata.type": "#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference",

    "Id": 3,

    "Value": "DE"

  },

  {

    "@odata.type": "#Microsoft.Azure.Connectors.SharePoint.SPListExpandedReference",

    "Id": 6,

    "Value": "IT"

  }

]

 

So I wanted To read each value separately  in each case to compose a final good array of values ..

 

  1. I put the output of a  message action ( compose) of the field in an array variable ( vtabsplit)
  2. So i put in an integer variable the count of the number of  values read

length(variables('vtabsplit'))

 

jpr23_1-1685709071179.png

 

3 ) then i put a condition of the count of values found

 

Two cases :

  1. If the count is 1 ,  it means that there is only one value, so a string ! )

In this case the use of the split function is useful to extract the different country.

( -> split(variables('vtabsplit')[0]?['Value'],';') )

 

A select function can extract the values

And an Apply to each loop can add the values to my final array

 

 

jpr23_2-1685709071180.png

 

 

 

 

jpr23_3-1685709071181.png

 

 

 

  1. If the count is not 1 ( 0 or more)

I select the output of message ( vcompose ) action ( see highjer)

Abd apply to each loop to add each values to my final array

 

jpr23_4-1685709071182.png

 

 

 

  1. Finaly , i use an update element to put my array "vtabpays" in the array field in an array mode !
