Perspective formatting query as JSON output

I have a label in my Ignition Perspective project that is bound to a Query Binding. The label is supposed to display an integer, but it is displaying the integer in JSON format instead.

I have verified that my query is correct because the same query in Vision displays a plain integer, and in the testing section of Named Queries, it also shows the integer correctly. Why is the Query Binding giving me a JSON output instead of the plain integer only in a label? I have tried casting as a String in my SQL query but that just gets me [{"String here":0}] I know I am missing something but not sure what. New to Perspective and could use some help. Thanks!

Try setting the return format to scalar in the query binding.

Thank you, that did the trick. It was set to auto.
