Flow not working saying 'column doesnt exist!!!! It is there!!

HI All

Head banging against wall now!!


I have a sharepoint list and im creating a flow against it being triggered from a powerapp.

The flow i am creating says the column does not exist when i use a Compose function



Yet the Sharepoint list definitely has it in!




Here is my formula which is based on one i already have built.




If i insert 'Create item'  after get file content it shows in the field choice.




So why would it not show in a Compose function.


I have rebuilt this flow a number of times!!


Any help appreciated

Hey @gazzo1967 


You have a tricky one here. Try the following. In the Data > Connections, try to reset your connection. I know this looks like the "reboot computer strategy," but sometimes the connections take time to update, and things like this happen. I can't tell you how many times I fixes similar strange issues like this by working on the connections. 


Another trick is to export and import the Flow again. This will force you to define the connections and reset them, and this may also solve the issue.


Let's try this and see if it works. If now, let me know, and I'm sure we can figure this one out.


If I have answered your question, please mark your post as Solved.

the easiest way is to remove the flow connection in PowerApps, save and publish the PowerApps and then reastablish the connection. That will reset the connections in flow.


(also: it's good etiquette not to be too liberal with those exclamation marks!!!!!!!)
