Trigger condition not working. My flow keeps firing.

I have tables with monthly data, and I need to calculate row-level summations. I also need a column-level summation for all columns. 

My columns are:


Project ID | Name | Budget Year | Total Amount | Sum Total | Jan | Feb | ... | Dec


'Total Amount' is a calculated column, but this doesn't provide me with the column-level total, so I have a 'Sum Total' currency column that I populate using a flow that gets triggered every time something gets created or modified.

To ensure I don't run into an infinite loop, I have the below in the Trigger Condition:


@not(equals(triggerBody()?['Total_x0020_Amount'], triggerBody()?['SumTotal']))



Alternatively, I also tried:


@not(equals(triggerOutputs()?['body/Total_x0020_Amount'], triggerOutputs()?['body/SumTotal']))



Neither of these work and my flow keeps firing. Could someone point me in the right direction?

Hi @aliensurfer 


What if you try with the following expression? If "SumTotal" is empty, then the flow will trigger; otherwise, the flow will not trigger.



Hope this helps. 

Kind regards.
