Re: Not able to copy sharepoint ID using Flow

Hi @bhrigu12,


1) You could see that Id field is marked as a required field in the "Update item" action. This is because that Flow would use this field to identify which item to be updated. It will update the item whose ID matches the ID you put in this action. IDs of each items are created by SharePoint automantically when you first create each item and cannot be changed later.  


2) Is your SDM/BSC Value -1 column a Lookup column? If not, what's its column type?


I have a lookup column that would look like this in the Update Item action, but I can pick the value for this field. So I wonder if you have picked "Operating Profit" option when you create this flow.

Re: Not able to copy sharepoint ID using Flow

Hi Mona,


1). Sorry, I think I dint explain the problem correctly. Actually, I need the Sharepoint ID to get concatenate with the Title something like "Title-ID" in another Column. When I tried doing concatenate using formula I dint get the option of ID. So I tried copying ID to another column i.e RECid and than concatenate with Title. The flow was working initially but i did some mess around and its not working now. Can you help copying ID to another column??


2). Column type is Choice (Dropdown). Whenever the flow runs, the sharepoint gets updated with the default value (Operating Profit is default value of that column). I have removed the default value and kept it as blank. Hope it will work.
