Really simple Dataview query failing

Things I have tried

What I’m trying to do

Really hoping someone can just point out the error of my ways.

I just want to run a simple query for TASK on a single top level folder called Folder that contains other folders and notes. I am very new to Obsidian and Dataview so I could easily be doing something wrong here and suspect I am.

FROM “Folder”

This is as about as simple as I could bring the query to and matches from what I can see the examples in the Examples page etc and other resources online.

I keep getting

Dataview: Error: 
-- PARSING FAILED --------------------------------------------------

  1 | TASK 
> 2 | FROM “Folder”
    |      ^
  3 | GROUP BY

Expected one of the following: 

'!', '(', '-', 'csv(', 'outgoing(', file link, string, tag ('#hello/stuff')

Running the 0.5.43 version of the plugin.


Looks like you have smart quotes.

Try changing

FROM “Folder”

to this:

FROM "Folder"

Thank you so much never realized that. For other folks

Is how you turn this off on the iPad.
