Creating and updating sharepoint list


I have been struggling with this all week. 


I have created four lists

List 1 - Master list - Information captured and updated 

List 2 to 4 - 3 different teams work on and need access to only certain information

I managed to create flows to create lists from master list. I am having an issue updating from master list to all other lists without creating duplications 


Help please and Thank you

Can you please upload entire flow diagram? It is not clear from these pictures how you designed it.


Based on the error, it seems you are using incorrect ID to update item. Did you use getitem on the same list and used ID from that action?

Can you please check if the id is same for both master list and other lists. Error in the flow suggests that there doesn't exist any item with the ID being retrieved from the master list.


For example, let us consider your master list has 4 items, and the lists 2-4 have 2 items in each of them. Now when you create a new item in the master list the ID value for that item would be 5, if you try to update items in the list 2/3/4 they don't have any item with ID 5 and this would give error indicating could not find the list item.


Please check if the ID in master list matches with the child list items.

Thank you so much for your help. Please see below. 







In the update Item, Are you using ID from the Create Item action? If not, can you change it and test?

When i do that - it updates but also creates a new item on the second list causing a duplication
