Getting the Value of a Calculated Column

I am using SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint Workflows.

I have a Calculated Column that has  "|". It could have multiple ones. It came from a managed metadata field that was put into the calculated field. For some reason, in the workflow this calculate column keeps returning empty. In SharePoint I see a value there. HELP please!

Managed metadata fields are difficult to work within standard SP 2010/2013 workflows.  Maybe Flow can handle them.  this might be the cause of your problem.
