Updating metadata in converted document

I have created a flow that converts a document to PDF but I would like the meta data from the word document to update to the PDF. I have this working for the most part except for my Tags. The problem I am having is if the word document has 3 different tags, the PDF version will have 3 tags as well but only of the last one in the word document. I have posted a picture to explain it better.

Hello @ML147243 ,

what type of field is the 'Tags'? Multiple choice selection?

Currently it's always the same value because you use the same dynamic content to update it - it creates 3 versions of the document. It updates 3x the first tag, then 3x the second tag, and 3x the third tag, which then stays with the document.

@tom_riha Hello,

 

The Tags are multiple choice selections. Should I have Tag Value 3 times in the same row?

Hello @ML147243 ,

get rid of the 'Apply to each', you must get all the choice values at the same time.

'Select' all the values from the Tags as shown below and use the 'Select' output to update the column (switch to 'input entire array' and use the output).
