Hi @Ahmed

 

Please find attached an example workflow for the use case below (V11.0).

 

The key here was to replicate the format the formula tool needs e.g. "Value" - Adding double quotes within the List Box Interface tool.

 

This is why in the list box we need to choose 'Generate custom List'. A double quotes on either side of the value you choose.

 

In the action tool we then need to choose to replace the whole string.

In your examples we were passing the True or false expression for the values you chose in the list box: e.g. January=False,February=False,March=False,April=True,May=False,June =False,July=False,August=False,September =False,October=False,November=False,December=False

 

Best,
