how to dynamically transform one activity output and feed in another activity in ADF

Arundhati Sen 151 Reputation points

If I directly give (@{item().id} @{item().col1} @{item().col2} @{item().name} @{item().col5}) in set variable is gives back result "C0004\t1000\t\tAT020\t1102"

but I give the activity output (@activity('Lookup_DB_column names').output.firstRow.column_names) which holds nothing but the value (@{item().id} @{item().col1} @{item().col2} @{item().name} @{item().col5}) then it is not giving


but (@{item().id} @{item().col1} @{item().col2} @{item().name} @{item().col5} ) only as string.

Is there any way that activity output or parameter value can be dynamically executed to get result out from the value
