Help! Power automate approval message not showing field values

I have a workflow that uses the Approval process.  There are several fields used in the approval message. When the approval message is received, some of the fields are empty in the message.  Other fields show the content.  Example:  "Item" will not show content and "Quantity" does show.  

I noticed the fields that are not showing the content properties are "outputs('Update_item4')?['body/Item']" where the fields that show content are: "triggerOutputs()?['body/Value]".


If I add the dynamic content field, it still doesn't show up in the approval message.


Please help.

Can you post a screen shot of your Approval action as well as the Approval email.  That will be a bog help to those who want to assist.
