Using Flow to update from one SharePoint List to another SharePoint list with matching fields

I have searched and seen that this question has been asked before, however I am new at using Flow and need some help.


I have a list called CounterMeasures that the following columns:

  • Segment
  • Modality
  • KPI
  • Actual
  • Target

I have another list called Heatmap which has the same fields, where I am having the issue is that I need to have the first three columns match exactly in both lists before you update the Actual and Target to the Heatmap list.


So they basically update/create an item and if the Segment, Modality and KPI match in the Heatmap list it copies over the content in the Actual and Target to the Heatmap.


I dont know how to ensure that match works and i need to figure out what I am missing.  I would really appreciate someones help.


Thank you in advance.




Your segment column is a search, in my example I use this as a single text.

In OData the query must meet the documentation, to work correctly I will need you to give me the names and types of each of these 3 columns.


I will make an example for you and put here, so you can import and compare with your current flow

I did your compose and it is reflecting the correct information I also updated all of the fields that I am needing to update with those compose fields and ran the flow successfully still not updating the list 2.  I am so lost as to why this is not working as expected.


tay calm, it's more complicated to work with query columns, I'll set the example and leave it as explanatory as possible for you, so you can quietly do something similar

@Ruenells   as we saw together we had some troubles with the OData , because the column have some spaces, and i don't know why it isn't working, but we had workaround this by using an condiction inside apply to each to ensure that the values will be the same.

Can you please mark the thread as solutioned?
