Help with list from csv and firebase

I keep getting an error when retrieving a list from firebase db that looks like this:

“thing1, thing2, thing3, thing4”

(the speech marks are as it looks in firebase, as it does with every stored value)

The error i get is as follows:

Cannot parse text argument to “list from csv row” as CSV-formatted row
Note: You will not see another error reported for 5 seconds.

I copied the original list from firebase and pasted it into a text block, and now the app works perfect with searching and everything.

Anybody know whats up?

All help would be much appreciated. Many thanks,


Is the Firebase DB result contains quotes? Or did you just added yourself? If yes, you can replace the quotes with Text.Replace block.

thats how it would look if i took a screenshot, if you get me. so firebase in website would look like " thing1, thing2, etc" inside of the text box. must i remove them to make a list from csv though

You can view some blocks to help you

Sometimes list from CSV row text does not works with firebase.
You can use split text at block instead.

Doing so works with me appropriately only if you arrange the response in a consistent manner
