How to update an existing item in SP List from another SP List ?

Hello,

 

I have two SP List with the same structure and I want to update both of my SP List when an item is modified in SP List 1 or in SP List 2.

But I don't have any column ID in this SP List, because my data is identified by 3 criteria : Structure, City and Date.

 

So, how can I do to specify that my "ID = Structure + City + Date" ?

 

Thank you for your help 🙂

Hello @nliu 

You should use the ID value of the "Get Items" action, and not the ID of the output of the trigger.

Could you check that?

Hope it helps.

Hello @nliu 

You can use the SharePoint Get Items action using a Filter Query to update those items found depending on the condition:

2020-03-06 10_09_42-Create your flow _ Power Automate.png

 

1) When an item is updated in List 1

2) Find the items in the List 2 that have the same structure, city and date

3) Update the items that match the condition (it should be only one).

Hope it helps!

Hi @fchopo 

We have to check the list name and based on the listname we have to update the other list. So its better to use the condition action and check the listname, if yes update the list1 with the list2 details else update the list2 with the list1 details.

Hello @nliu 

Please, remove the white spaces in the name of the columns when writing the filter expression, and use quote to surround values. Have a look at this example: PériodedeRéalisation eq '2020-03-05'

Hope it helps!

@sudharsan1985  what do you mean by check the list name ?

Hi @nliu 

In your filters you had included the column name with '/' and I don't think so SharePoint will have an internal name with '/'. You told that updating one list should update the other. How would you know which list item is updated, so I asked you to check the list name and update the other list.

@nliu It doesn't work because of the ' character in the expression (structuredel'enduitsuperficiel)

Can you try to rename your columns, not using special characters like ´ ` ' ?

Hey I tried to rename my columns like this "Structure", "Ville" and "Date" but it says that the column "Structure" doesn't exist. That it might be deleted by an other user  :

 

{
"status": 400,
"message": "La colonne « Structure » n’existe pas. Elle a peut-être été supprimée par un autre utilisateur.\r\nclientRequestId: 53a3027b-e50e-48f7-842b-9bea0f9baa10\r\nserviceRequestId: 53a3027b-e50e-48f7-842b-9bea0f9baa10"
}

Thank you for helping me

 

 

Hi @nliu 

Try to use the internal name of the column in the filters. Though you renamed the column, only the display name will get changed and not the internal name. Navigate to the List settings page and click on the column, you can see the internal name on the end of the URL in the address bar.
