Split multiple choice question answers into rows

Hi 

 

I am very new to Automate and looking for a bit of guidance.  

 

I have a Form with a multiple choice question and if two selections are made I would like to have two rows added to spreadsheet.

 

Also if one item is selected and then the quantity is change can I again get two rows.

 

I have seen some answers where columns are added but not rows.

 

Sorry if this is a basic question 😁 

Thanks

Suzanne

Hi @suzgarv how are you?

 

Thanks for using our community 🙂

 

@suzgarv  when you get the options sent by Forms , the text looks like this ["My custom choice","Option 2","Option 4"]

 

So, you need to split those values in a array and them loop on those values to create your row

 

Maybe this article can help Split function - Power Apps | Microsoft Docs and also this post on community https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/Split-string-into-array-of-characters-empty-delim...  about the function

 

Please let me know if this information helped on your question.

 

Regards.
