Updating Calendar based on date field in Sharepoint list

Good afternoon,

Long time reader, first time poster 🙂

I currently have a list in Sharepoint which when one of the date fields are populated it automatically creates an entry in a sharepoint site calendar.  This works fine.

What I am trying to achieve however is if the date is changed in the list then to either update the existing Calendar entry with the new date or delete the old entry and create a new one with the correct date.

So far I have put a Flow in place to capture the ID of the calendar entry and store it ina column in the list, this also works.

The bit I am having an issue with is looking up that calendar entry using the captured ID number in the list, it just doesnt appear as an option to enter in to the ID field in Flow.

What am I doing wrong?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks
