Updatefile properties with info from lookup column

Hello Powerapp'ers (again 🙂 )


I have created an app that uploads are file to a sharepoint document library, and that part works as it should.


However I would like it to tag et with meta data. I want it to update a column called addresses which is a lookup column.




Error is called Function Run has some invalid arguments.


Thanks for any assistance provided.

Are you sure that you are sending the ID to the flow?

Well the file upload works without attaching the meta data.


I am not sure what you mean

From the screenshot I assume that you have to enter the Address Id. So you have to pass an ID to the flow and for instance not the address itself.


Sometimes the flow also has problems with the parameter type. From my experience only strings are handled smoothly.

You could wrap the ID in a Text() function to be sure.


But even without that, are you able to check what was sent to the flow? For instance you could enter a 'Initialize Variable' Action right after the trigger of the flow and set the value to the value passed from PowerApps. Then when you check the latest execution you would see whether a valid value is really sent.
