How to lock field / Update value in list A without reflecting it in list B lookup column

This might be a too long and complex issue, I'm sorry 😅

 

I'm building an Inventory app, I have 2 lists:

  1. List A that contains the materials info & Quantity
  2. List B which acts as transaction log to register the withdraw action for each material

How I've built list B?

Column 1 is a lookup column that will display also column 2

I've created the flow below to copy the value in column 2 to column 3 so I can subtract the withdrawn Qty. (column4) from the original Qty. available and save it in column 5.

Then I've created this flow to update the material's Qty. 

used the condition to prevent causing a loop

So where is the problem??!!

when material Qty. gets updated in list A, it is directly reflected in list B 😂 

I need a way to prevent the older fields from getting updated, something like locking them from getting updated so any older transaction is stored and can't be modified

Hi @amralomari ,

 

Sorry for the function that you mentioned to lock field is not supported in Microsoft flow currently and I'm afraid that there is no any workaround for this requirement.
