Find Record Invalid Filter Error

I am running into a wall with this automation, hoping someone knows what I’m doing wrong.
When a record in my Events table matches a condition, I am trying to build a Find a Record automation that finds a record in my Main Directory table where email in Main Directory is email in Events. I am getting an invalid filter error on my email field. Not sure what I’m doing wrong here. Ultimately I would like to update the retrieved record with data from Events, but I can’t get beyond the filter error.

Set your trigger conditions to include “Email is not empty”, then retest. Do you still get the error?

That did it! Thank you!

@D_F Thanks for asking this! (and thanks to @Kamille_Parks for the response!) I was hitting the exact same wall :man_facepalming:

Hi, I’m having the issue but this fix didn’t work.

Did you ever get an answer to this? I am having the same issue.
