I am using the SharePoint Get files (properties only) action in Flow on O365. I want to use Filter Query and Order By. Should the Dynamic content display a list of the SharePoint View columns to pick from? The only item listed is the Variable I created in a previous step.
I was modeling my data using information from this post:
The error I received was:
Column 'Customer' does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user.
The following is what my properties were set to:
The following are the Column Headers from the library View:
Anyone have suggestions for me?
Flow uses SharePoint internal column names for this filter.
To resolve your issue:
Go to library settings
Click on the Customer column name
Look at the URL on the column settings page
The column's internal name will be at the end of the URL after field=
Replace Customer with the columns internal name in your query
If this addresses your issue, please mark your post as Solved.
I followed the steps Scott outlined and changed the field names to correspond to the Field values in the URL:
Customer -> Customer_x0020_All (was Field=Customer%5Fx002d%5FAll in the URL)
Created By -> Author (was Field=Author in the URL)
I am still getting error:
Column 'Customer_x0020_All' does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user.
When I replaced it with: Customer%5Fx002d%5FAll
I get the error:
The expression "Customer%5Fx002d%5FAll eq ''" is not valid.
I didn't see where you could us 'empty' like '@empty' in a filter. Does it not like the use of '' (empty string)? I tried to change this to "" and it doesn't like that so it definately wants singe quotes. I am going to put a value in the single quites to see if taht makes a difference!
You could try running your flow without the filter, so that you could check what the required name is of your field. For example my flow uses the criteria Modified date, which is stated as modified.
I did get this to work by adding a filter array. I would have preferred to reduce the output though at the SharePoint selection. Turns out that Customer is a managed dataset and I would need to specify that I only wanted blank/null entries on it's label but have not been able to find how to reference that just yet. In the filter array it is referenced as: ['Customer_x002d_All']?['Label']. I tried all of the following variations in the filter and continue to get an error:
['Customer_x002d_All']?['Label'] eq 'XXX'
'Customer_x002d_All'?'Label' eq 'XXX'
Customer_x002d_All?Label eq 'XXX'
Customer_x002d_All\Label eq 'XXX'
'Customer_x002d_All'\'Label' eq 'XXX'
['Customer_x002d_All']\['Label'] eq 'XXX'
I have been unable to find an example that uses fields having parts to find the right reference to use in the filter. I will continue to search for other examples and documentation on field reference.
So looking at the information @Momo sent me, a specific field I am trying to filter on appears as follows:
"TermGuid": "guid removed",
"Label": "Project Status",
"Value": "Project Status|guid removed"
I would want to filter on "Label" for "Document_x0020_Type", just have not figured out the format/syntax to do that or if it can even be done without developing my own connector!
I'm also not a pro in MS flow nor in programming. But this is the code I used in my flow: Modified lt ' XXX '
Have you tried something like: Label eq ' XXX ' ?
