I want to add multiple fields in "fields to add" using the join attributes by location algorithm in the graphical modeler.

It works if I add only one field, like DISTANCE, but when I want to add others it gives me errors. I tried separating with ,, ; and '', tried with brackets too. Is it possible to add other fields but not all existing fields?

I'm using QGIS 3.6.

It should work with ;, I just tested it successfully (my fields are called 1, 2, and 3):

    Make sure not to use a space after the semicolon Jan 25, 2023 at 14:10

By using the tool "Join attributes by location" you choose the fields you want to add here: enter image description here

Click the botton with the 3 dots and select from the list.

    The tool is different in the graphical modeler. This doesn't apply.
