Scheduled flow to move an item from one SP list to another SP list - not following my condition

So I have a SP list that is getting too large to manage so I'm wanting to move older items off of it and onto an "archive" list.  My flow is set up as follows:

 

Recurrence - 11PM every night

Get Items -  items from the main SP list

Apply to each - value

Condition - when my date column is less than or equal to utcNow().  This date column is set to show a date that is 6 months after the SP item was created.  So, if the item was created on 1/1/2019, then this column will show 7/1/2019 and thus, the condition is true to be moved (If Yes) If this date is say 12/1/2019, then it should not be moved as it does not meet the condition.  Now, I do not have a If No condition.

Create Item - create item in the archive SP list

Delete Item - delete item from main list

 

My problem I'm having is all items are being impacted, even items that do not meet the condition

Hi @bryanc78 

 

Try using the formatDateTime expression for both conditions to same format and compare

 

formatDateTime(utcnow(), 'yyyy-MM-dd')

Hi @bryanc78 

 

Get items will return only 100 items if you left the Top count field blank. See this post

So, while that worked and is moving items.  My flow has cycled through multiple times in the last 2 hours and has not picked up any new items even though I have a ton still to get through.  Is the flow just going thorugh 100 at a time and just happened to not find any that matched the condition?
