same ODATA works and stop works without any reason

Hi!

I think I found a bug:

<substringof('x',y)> works perfectly at sharepoint list (get items) (however at odata cheat sheet title and value are in opposite site I'm not sure it's correct).

When I tried to use the same ODATA filter at excel list (list a rows) it stopped working. Also I came to the point I know excel reads that differently and excel wants <filter substringof(?)> where (?) is place where syntax error apears. Syntax error 18.

 

I would be grateful for fixing that because I heard ODATA should be same everywhere. If I'm wrong show me documentation of flow where is that explained why sharepoint ODATA works in one way and excel odata works in different way.

Re: same ODATA works and stop works without any reason

Hi @KamilAdamczyk ,

 

Currently ODATA filter queries has limitations for different connectors in Flow. What works in for one service might not work in another type. For example, sertain queries and operations work in SharePoint and those might not work in CDS, SQL or Excel etc as is refered in the link below:

Okay however why substring works in the opposite way than ODATA documentation? Object and value have to be in opposite places.
