How do I enter a null/blank value in a Make filter

I’m sure the answer is ridiculously easy, but nothing has worked for me yet.

I am creating an automation that either creates a Google Drive folder or updates an existing folder.
If the Folder ID field in an Airtable record is blank, I want the Make automation to route to the ‘Create a Folder’ step.

What condition should I add in the filter to say If Folder ID value is blank? Everything I’ve tried so far (null or emptystring keywords, Folder ID does not exist, etc) gets routed to the ‘If Folder ID exists’ track.

Have you tried checking for emptystring instead of null? Or using the Basic Operator “Exists”?

Yes I tried all 3 originally before asking for help.

I tried it again using just the text ‘null’ instead of the pink null button and it worked!
