Pulling approvers from sharepoint list for multi-stage process

Hello! I am trying to build a Power Automate multi-stage approval flow that pulls approvers from a Sharepoint list in multiple stages.


I suspect this is a filtering issue, but I'm stuck trying to figure out how to pull content from specific columns for specific parts of the approval flow.


The Approvers list has a "Title" column that indicates the document category (each category has its own approvers): "Finance", "Manufacturing", "HR". Then each row in the list has a set of columns: "Stage 1 approver(s)" (containing zero or more names), "Stage 2 approver(s)" (containing zero or more names), and "Stage 3 approvers" (containing zero or more names).


In the Document Library, there is a mandatory column that is connected to the Approvers Title list, so there is always a row in the Approvers list corresponding to the document category of each file in the library that could be sent for approval.


I am trying to figure out how to query the Approvers table so that I get the "Stage 1 approver(s)" that correspond to the file's document category (which in turn corresponds to an entry in the "Title" column in the Sharepoint list. I assume that once I can pull the "Stage 1 approver(s)", I can easily adapt it to the later stages.


Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
