SharePoint Update Item activity getting called recursively



I have a list and I have the workflow to update the ID coulumn with values of 3 other columns. I have 2 workflows (One which gets called when new list item gets created, and another when item gets updated) 


There is no issue with the create workflow but there is a problem with updat item workflow. When The item gets updated the workflow runs recursively and randomly updates the Departure Date and stops until it reached 26/03/2017. Below is the screesnhot of the workflow

Re: SharePoint Update Item activity getting called recursively

Hi mjshravan,


What’s the value saved in the column “A1.Trip ID”? Is the value saved as expected?


I create a similar flow with you, the value is saved as expected in my list.



Best regards,
