sharepoint update item overwrite versus append

Hi I am building and have been using a flow for sometime that updates Sharepoint list items. The Update Item call looks to overwrite data in most circumstances. I have one field that is a variable that I want assigned to a field in the item. It always appears to append instead of overwrite. What is the default behavior and how do I get it to overwrite instead of append?

That is a setting in the advanced settings of the multiple lines of text column inside SharePoint.  You can change it in the additional column settings.
