Why aren't all my list columns being copied to second list?

I've read other posts on copying list items from one list to another, but I still haven't discovered why all of my columns arent being copied over to the second list.

List #1 has these columns names and types:

  • Attachments 
  • Title (linked to item with edit menu) 
  • Body (multiple lines of text)
  • Expires (Date)
  • IconURL (Single line of text)

List #2 has these columns names and types:

  • Attachments 
  • Title (linked to item with edit menu) 
  • Body (multiple lines of text)
  • Expires (Date)
  • IconURL (Picture) 

When an item is created in List #1, IconURL is populated with default text for that list which is a URL path to an icon.

When it gets copied to List #2, IconURL should be showing the icon instead of the path because it is formated as a picture.

 

When I create the FLOW from the source list (List #1), it looks like this:

I know List #1 is displaying a funky name, but that's another issue, at least I know it is connecting.

 

1.   Why aren't all my columns being listed?

I created a new item in List #1 and it copied it to List #2 as it was suposed to, but it only copied the fields I linked in the "Update Item" form.

2.   Am I using the correct form to do the copying?

3.   Can a 'single line of text' field (with a URL for content) be copied to a 'hyperlink or photo' field?

 

Any help on this is appreciated!!

@JamesB-NBCC :

 

As far as I know, you cannot update a hyperlink or picture column using "out of the box" Flow actions.  You can get there by using the Send an HTTP request to SharePoint action.

Details and instructions can be found here.
