Flow: Update main list from diferent lists based on UniqueID (not the standard ID)

Hi, 

I am having trouble with creating this flow.

I have 5 lists: A,B,C,D,E - all of them are the same. There are 2 columns that we need to focus:

1) ID - standard ID field

2) MyID - ID we made to have real unique ID between lists. Formula: [ID]  & [ListName] 

 

There is also main lists - that combains all records from those 5 lists above. Here comes the problem:

When I try to make flow that updates main list - based on MyID (the only possible value) - I  can only choose [ID] - the standard ID witch will be diferent. For example:
First record from list A has ID = 1. and MyID = 1A, but this record on main list has ID= 3, and MyID = 1A.

 

How can I make flow that identyfy rows by MyID instead of ID

 

Any help will be aprociated 🙂

Hi @PowerAppsUser4,

 

You could use the Get items + Filter query to approach that:

1. Get items from the listA, filter query to find the MyID column value equals to 1A;

2. Update item with the return ID to update master list.
