Copy choice column (multiple choices) to another list but need a carriage return between each item

Hi there

 

I have a choice column 'Campus' in List 1 for multiple choices.

In Power Automate, when an item is created the flow copies the Campus column to List 2.

It won't copy the column item over because it is multiple choices - which is disappointing, I would like to do that.

So what if copy the column to a multi line text column (I used Select and Join to have a comma between the choices and that worked). But I need to have the choices on separate lines, so I tried the option below.

Compose 2 is:

join(createArray(outputs('Compose')), 's\n ')

 

 

First option: copy the choice column in List 2 as it is (multi choice column).

Second option: I need to get the choices and put a carriage return - this is what I have so far and it only selects one choice.

 

If you can help with me with first choice OR second choice, I'd be very happy 🙂

Thank you for your help but unfortunately that it kind of worked.

 

It had 3 values in teh first list and when I tried that solution it copied the last value three times.

 

Eg. In the first list in campus it had Campus 1, Campus 2, Campus 3.

In the second list, it copied Campus 3, Campus 3, Campus 3.
