SharePoint Customized Power App Form

One column out of 12 columns of metadata in my sharepoint library is not showing up when my flow moves the document to another sharepoint library. I'm using a customized power apps form. All my column names match, their all the same. Does anyone know why the column data is not showing up when its moved? I've checked my flow and its grabbing the meta data its just not showing up in the column.

Is the column a site column or just a column added to the list?  Just because the column name is the same doesn't mean its the same column in both lists.  When you create a column it uses a GUID to identify the column.  If you just add the column to two different lists then the columns will have different GUIDs.  But if you create a Site Column and add it to both lists then it will have the same GUID. I suspect that is why the column isn't being duplicated correctly by your form.

Its a column I added to a SharePoint library and I added 9 columns and only one does not show up when the document moves to another library. All the rest of the column data moves fine to the next library.

@Pstork1 should my other libraries just be look up columns, is that what your saying?

No, I'm saying the libraries should be using the same content types made up of the same set of site columns.  Can you show me the schemas of the two libraries and which column doesn't sync?
