Flow fails on action 'Update Item'



I've created an approval flow flow that updated a specific column item based on the status of the approval. 


The approval seems to be working fine, but every time the flow tries to complete the 'Update item' action, the flow fails.



The error message goes as follows: 



It says the passed-in field "Procurement" could not be found. The thing is that I have no column named "Procurement" in my SP list, so it's also not a field that can be updated. 


Does anybody know what the problem could be here?


Thanks in advance. 


Best regards,

Hi @AVH,


Could you show me more details about your flow configuration? What dynamic contents are you using for each field in the action Update item?


Could you share more details on the list? What column types are there in the list?


Do you change any of the columns after the flow that based on the list has been created?


I have made a simple test by creating a flow likes below. The update item action runs succeed.


In the flow, I am trying to update the Response to the State column which is of type Single line of text. Please check the following screenshot for a reference:




Please try again with it. If you are still having the issue, please feel free post back with more details.



Best regards,
