We found out that SP Flows does not like " marks in a string in a column. Are there others characters that SP OL has issues with?

    Hi, @Ken Thomas-3566 ,

    Both quotes and apostrophes may need to be handled with care in Flows. To escape these special characters, here are some threads with solutions or workarounds like inserting a "\" character before the quote character.

    If you have further questions about special characters in flow, I will suggest you to post in the forum focusing on Power Automate(Flow)
