Get items - Filter Query error



I am building a workflow which updates an item in SharePoint List "A" whenever this same item is updated in SharePoint List "B". Each item is identified by an unique ID number (NOT the ID which is set by SharePoint automatically whenever an item is created). This ID comes from MS Forms and it is the ID number of the form in MS Form. It is contained in both SharePoints in a column type Number named "IDForSync".


When I use the "Get item" action (SharePoint connector) with the following Filter Query: IDForSync eq'IDForSync' and trigger the flow, I get this error message:


"status": 400,

"message": "Column 'IDForSync' does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user"


The 'IDForSync' comes as dynamic content from an "Update item" action which uses SharePoint List "B". In other words, I want that "Get items" gives me the item in SharePoint List "A" which equals 'IDForSync' in SharePoint "B".


Could you please help me?


Thank you

@Turulense2020 Firstly I don't think you need the Condition because the Outcome will always be either Approve or Reject. In the filter query there doesn't seem to be a space between eq and the '

Hello @RobElliott ,


You are right, it was not necessary. I have a "do until" action on another branch but the condition was not necessary.


Unfortunately, after adding the space between eq and the ", and deleting the condition, I still get the same error message in the Get Items action.

Hi @Turulense2020,


The issue will occur may be caused by the column name of IDForSync not correct.

Please check the original name of the IDForSync on SharePoint list board by clicking the ListSetting -> ColumnName, then in the address bar, you can get the original name:Annotation 2020-01-13 145550.png
