Flow grabs wrong value from choice field

Hello Everyone,

 

The flow we have is grabbing the wrong value of a choice field.

When a record is created in ListA we would like to have a similar record created in ListB

 

Sharepoint ListA (Repairs)

Serial# - text

Model# - text

Client ID - choice  (10 choices in dropdown)

 

Sharepoint ListB (Status)

Serial - text

Client ID - choice (10 choices in dropdown)

 

When the flow runs it gets the serial number correctly just fine but the Client ID value is the wrong one.

It appears to grab the Client Code below the one that is chosen.

 

Attached is a screenshot of the flow.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Thank you.

If you want the Client ID column in list B to match what is in List A then you should be selecting "Client ID Value" from Dynamic properties for List A as the input for List B.

Re: Flow grabs wrong value from choice field

 

Hi @lakosked ,

 

I agree with @ScottShearer that if the field type is choice, we should configure the Choice Value in the corresponding field.

 

If the field is a lookup column, we may need to use the column id.

 

Please take a try again and feel free to let us know if the issue still exists.

Re: Flow grabs wrong value from choice field

Hello Everyone.

And thank you all for your replies.

They were helpful in that you pointed to "value".

 

This caused further digging to that field specifically which then pointed to the error.

The ClientID was getting pulled from a 3rd table in SP that was not a one to one relationship.

It was a 3rd table we didn't notice due to its name.  At any rate, this caused the table to have more entries than the original data.

 

Once this was discovered, we pointed the flow to the correct table with the client ID and now things are lining up.

Thanks again.
