Help Needed - Updating a SharePoint list from another when an item is created or modified INCLUDING ATTACHEMENTS

Hi Everyone,

I have two identical SharePoint lists. One is the source list where the user inputs the data and the other is the Final list where the data will be stored. I have made a flow that creates a new item in the final list if it does not already exist and it modifies an item in the final list if it already exists. This flow is working fine but I would like it to include attachments.

 

I have made another flow that take the attachment in the source list and creates a new item in the parent list. This works well but I would also like it to work for existing items. For example if item ID:2 is modified in the source list and an attachment is added I would like the changes and the attachment to flow through to the Final list.

 

I hope you can help.

 

Thanks in advance Ian

Hi, 

 

Thanks for getting back so soon. How does that flow know which line item in the list to attach the attachment to ? For example I have given each item in the source list a number. I want the flow to add the attachment to the same number line item in my second list. 

 

Thanks

Ian

@Ian95k  you can try by adding and ID column or if you have it just use that ID. If you don't know the if maeby you can use get items and a condition to get juwt the row and the ID of the row that you want to add the attachment.
