Set Variable with herself

Hey Guys,


Here is my issue, I'm trying to go through a SP List and everytime my Status of a item is "proposed" I want some info to be stored in a variable and at the end of the list I want that variable to be emailed to me.


Pretty simple in a normal for each on any language, but it seems that I cannot set a variable with herself in order to keep my variable to increase the text values without loosing the previous value that was already there.


Anyone has a solution for this using Flow?Capture.PNG

Re: Set Variable with herself

Hi @TiagoCosta1983,


Yes, a variable can't update herself.

Could you please share more details about which data would be stored in the variable?

If the condition is the same, then we could consider take use of Filter Array action, then convert the result into an HTML table, after that send the results with an Email.

Build Flows with HTML tables

Besides, if you would like to store the result within an Apply to each, you will need at least two variables, one for the single item result, another is used to put the single item results together.

Re: Set Variable with herself

Hi @v-micsh-msft

Well, what I want to store is simple text coming from some sharepoint fields from a list, like supplier name - supplier country - status ...


the point was to build an array on the variable itself and then just send an email with that variable.
