When a record is created, updated or deleted - trigger a flow only if old value is not empty

Hi all,


Is it possible to run a trigger "When a record is created, updated or deleted " only when old value is not empty?

Filter expression within this trigger refers to new value. So it's easy to trigger a flow if new value is not empty or empty.

I can't find a way to refer to a value which is already in the entity.



new value = 123456

old value = empty - flow should not be triggered as old value is empty

old value = 123 - flow should be triggered as old value (123) is NOT empty and I want to replace with (123456) 


Thanks in advance
