Sharepoint get items from list (newbie)

Hello newbie here with I have created a flow that collects MS forms submissions and stores in a sharepoint list(currently I have just a couple submissions because I am testing.  I have not set up any connections I am not sure if that is required. Now I want to get items from the list and I am getting the following error:

Thank You



  "message""The expression \"substringof(‘clinicianID’,‘openingDate’,‘Referral’)\" is not valid. Creating query failed.\r\nclientRequestId: 02eea69c-b23f-4119-836c-43716381cb6f\r\nserviceRequestId: 02eea69c-b23f-4119-836c-43716381cb6f"

Hello @bhope 


I would suggest using contains('myvalue',myfield) in place of "substringof" function and check if this helps resolve the error.
