Filter on a Sharepoint list

Hello all,
I would like to filter a larger sharepoint list by a message id.


List A and B have the same entry.
In list A a comment is set and this should be added in list B.


My clue for the entry is a message id.
Unfortunately I can't get the filter to filter the entry by this ID.

As a test I took the subject. After this the filter works directly. Unfortunately the subject exists several times and it is not the exact entry.

What is the best way to filter by the message ID?










List A:



List B:

community: sorry for writing in german. I will explain the solution in englisch but communicate in german


@tobko auf welcher Basis werden die Einträge erstellt? Werden die immer zur gleichen Zeit erstellt?

und sind die beiden Listen immer exact gleich? oder passiert es, dass es Einträge in "A" gibt aber nicht in "B" und anders herum?


Wenn die Listen immer gleich sind und die Einträge zeitgleich erstellt werden, dann würde ich beide Listen auf die gleiche Entrags-ID bringen. Bsp:

ID letzter "A" Eintrag: 35

ID letzter "B" Eintrag: 48


In "A" 13 Eintäge erstellen, dass hier ebenfalls die letzte ID 48 ist. Wird nun vom System ein neuer Eintrag erstellt, hat dieser in beiden Listen die 49. Und damit kannst du im Flow filtern und den richtigen Eintrag beschreiben.

Hey André,

thanks for your answer and your idea.


The lists are filled based on backup mails from our customers.

One list receives all entries (success, failed, warning) and the other only errors.

Therefore they are unfortunately different.
I had forgotten to mention, sorry 🙂



The timestamp would be another approach, unfortunately I also get an error when I filter for it.

A query by subject, customer, status fails because there are too many entries in the list.
A filtering in advance by the Message-ID would be perfect.


Gruß Tobi
