Move multi Choice Field values to multi line value in another list

Is it possible to copy the values of a multi choice field in one list to another list, but in the format of a multi line? (Each line a new choice)

 

I've tried to do this but at the moment it is creating a new list item for each of the choices made in the new list.  (ie if I make 4 choices in list A I get 4 rows in List B)

 

Thanks

oh @Norseman  is creating 3 time your data because is generating an apply to each what you need to do is use a variable see.

you can use compose output to add it into the new sharepoint list dropdown value avoiding apply to each

Re: Move multi Choice Field values to multi line value in another list

That is great - Works a treat.  Thank you.

 

One little question:  Is it all possible to have each choice on a new line?

 

it currently coming out:

["Option 1","Option 2","Option 3","Option 4","Option 5"]
