Update action wrongly updating a different column



I have a flow that triggers from a powerapps button. Users selects an item in a gallery in powerapps puts some comments and submits it. Flow triggers on that item and it updates an item in sharepoint list(update item action). However in some cases the flow is updating a single line text column which it is not supposed to update. 


When I look at the flow history, the input and output values look fine except in some cases this single line column gets updated. The value it updates in this single line text column is from a different item in the same gallery.


Any ideas?


Thank you

Re: Update action wrongly updating a different column

Hi @ck25415,


What’s your current situation? Are you still having the issue?

How is your flow created? Could you share a screenshot?

Have you specified any value for the single line column that gets updated?

I made the following to test this issue, however, only specified columns will be updated. Please share more details to help reproduce.



Best regards,

Mabel Mao
