Special character " * " declared as a String value in a variable

I am having the following situation in UiPath Studio.
I declared a variable with a default value such as:
myVariable = “*”;

The thing is that when I want to use this variable in the activity “Type Into” basically the text box is not filled with this value.
In the text box I need to have this character *.

Could somebody explain me what is wrong or how should I do?

Hi @Daniel_DB ,

The value for Type Into activity is empty. Could you try passing the operatorVar variable to it and check ?

Thanks, after all there is no need to create any variable actually, but instead I can use the “Type this” text box and write what I need, in my example the * character.
