Replace function inside control flow ADF

I have a control flow which moves data from dataverse to CSV. one of the column has extra backslash, how would I use replace function to remove the backslash in control flow. Can I use lookup activity and replace the contents and use copy data to insert into csv?

Hi @Vs2021-4678 ,

Thank you for posting query in Microsoft Q&A Platform.

Data flows are right option to go with in this case, as Control flow and Copy activity will not help you to perform any kind of data transformations.

replace() function in data flows helps to replace all occurrences of a substring with another substring in the given string. If the last parameter is omitted, it is default to empty string.

Please Note, You should consider derived column transformation and apply replace() function on your column.

Hope this will help. Please let us know if any further queries.
