Create Unique Record for a SharePoint List

Hi All, 


I need to create a single record in a SharePoint list when a file has been loaded to another SharePoint List.




I have a SharePoint List called commission file data which is populated by an excel spreadsheet via a flow. It has 2 fields called Provider and StatementID.




I want to create a single record in a different SharePoint list that shows only unique values for Provider and Statement to show up in this list.




Does anyone have a recommended solution?


Thank you,

Hello @hanbots 

Create your list so you have one column in which you can fill with the concatenated values of the Provider and StatementID.

Make the column unique. This will make your flow action fail if it tries to insert a new item with the same Provider and StatementID in the unique column.

In the list, add any other columns as needed - probably would be a good idea to have one for Provider and one for StatementID.

In your flow, you then have to ensure that your flow can handle the failure by configuring the next action's Configure run after settings.

Kind regards, John
