Copy multi-line text column to managed metadatas column

Hi !


I have a column (multi-line text) that contains terms (term store).
I want to copy this column into a real managed metadata column.


But I can't copy a managed metadata text field. He's giving me a formatting error.



How can I do this, please?

Hi @BenjaminSTRIEBI,


Could you please show a bit more about your error message?

Could you please show a bit more about your Multiple lines of text column in your SharePoint library?

Further, could you please share a full screenshot of your flow’s configuration?


I have made a test on my side and confirm the issue on my side. The Managed Metadata column is a taxonomy column which groups the words, labels and terms that describe something, and then arranges the groups into a hierarchy, so I afraid that it is not impossible to update text into a Managed Metadata column in Microsoft Flow currently.


Someone else also faced similar issue with you, please check the following thread:


More details about Managed Metadata column, please check the follwoing article:
