Finding the next deadline date from a Sharepoint list

Hi All,


So I have a Sharepoint list which contains a "Deadline date" column. There are new/different deadline dates for each month that are already populated here manually.


Now I have another list where I have a column with "Today's date" (when the item was created) and another "Deadline date" column among other info. I want to search for the next nearest deadline date from the 1st list with respect to "Todays date" column and fill that in the second list.


For example:

1st list

28 March 2022

28 April 2022

30 May 2022

27 June 2022

28 July 2022


Todays date( when an item was created in 2nd list): 19 May 2022

Deadline date column (in 2nd list) should be : 30 May 2022 (as it is the nearest deadline from 1st list)


How can I do this either using calculated columns in SP or Power Automate?


This is really urgent to me. Thanks for any help!
