How to update choice field for document library

Have the following flow which works with the exception of updating the choice field as displayed below..


I only want to update the Doc Status choice field but the library has other choice/single value fields which I do not want updated...


Doc Department Value (choice)

Review Schedule Value (choice)

Revision Number (single value)

Months till Next Review (single value)


I'm rather new to Power Automate so pls excuse my weird approach to a solution...


Any help would be appreciated...

You'll need to reference the values from the Get File Properties action for any column that has a default value even though you don't want to change it.  In effect, you are "updating" the column to the existing value.  If you don't, the update will set it to the default value.  You'll also need to provide a value in a similar manner for any required column even though you don't really want to update them.

For other columns, you don't need to provide a value and they will not be updated.
