Document Library Copying a Field into a Lookup Column

I have a document library that has a title field that is part of the metadata for the library.  A flow copies that into the library as a variable and that part works great.  However, I'd like to copy that same title field into a Lookup field.  Is there a way to do that? I can't find anything in flow that shows me the field so I can do anything with it.  

Thanks!

Hi @CindyZ,

 

There are two ways to update the LookUp field, one is to select the information from drop down, the other is enter the custom value:

To update lookup field by using custom value you need to have the item id. You can get the id of your item by adding Get Items actions , add your filter expression
