Flow to get a name from a list when you only have the value of the column next to it

I need to make a flow that takes the Approver value from a file, finds it in a list and then returns the name from the same row

 

let me show you

how would i write the flow to get that value and JUST that value?

so far i have a filter query that does Role eq Doc Approver value (but i get an error saying Role doesnt exist?? its the correct list...)

Try replacing Role with Title in the filter query and let me know how it goes.  I suspect that the Title column was renamed to Role.

Thank you that worked! i put ' ' around the Doc approver value and put Title instead of Role

@Anonymous 

Now, put single quotes around Doc Approver in the query.
