Error Message on Alteryx App

Asteroid

Hi

 

I have an Alteryx APP with a List Box Interface tool governed by the following expression: [Geography] = IN ("AMER","APAC","EMEA")

 

When I run the app, I come across the following error message: 

 

"There were Errors:

Parse Error at char(0): Unknown variable "AMER"

 

What does this error mean and how do I fix it?

 

Thanks

Could you share images of how your action and list box are configured? It looks like you are not passing in a quote delimited list which can be set in the list box options.

Though this depends how your action is configured.

Perhaps your overwriting the quotes in your formula as an alternative.

Hi Ben,

 

Thanks for the quick response.

 

Below is the filter section of the workflow. Let me know if this is enough for you to figure out what is going on.

 

Thanks!

@cwoo,

 

In the list box, there is a setting option to create a "lista,listb,listc" output.  You need to generate a custom list ...

This help article should help.

 

Cheers,

Further to @MarqueeCrew advice. It looks like if you change the List Tool configuration to create the custom list and modify the Action tool update to specifically replace the string for your filter you should get the results expected.
