Condition in Flow not firing consistently, and I don't know why

I have a Flow and what I need it to do is if an item is added to a list called 'Issued by Advisors' and a number is entered in a field called 'Qty Given' it updates a field called 'Issued by Advisor' in a list called Issued Stock. I'm trying to get the Flow to match the items up in the tow lists by using a Condition to match three common fields in the two lists: Unique ID, Product Name and Product ID.  I've got the Flow firing when an item is created or modified on the Issued by Advisors list, then a Get items action to get the fields from the Issued Stock list. I found that for the Unique ID field I had to use a Compose action with the following expression to convert it into an integrin for the  Condition to pick it up:




The problem I have is that it doesn't always work. This morning I tested it and it worked 3 out of 5 times. I can't see why it's not working all the time. The console is showing success for every flow so I don't have anything to go on. Any ideas? Thanks in advance

Hello @Sutekh666 ,

try to add 'Compose' actions before the 'Condition' and store each of the conditions into the action, 1 'Compose' action and put there 'Outputs' from the left side and 'Outputs' from the right side. Then repeat the same also for 'Product N..' and 'ProductID' (=3 compose actions in total). That will show you in the run history what values enter the condition and maybe you'll see why it's evaluated as 'false' in some cases.
