Sharepoint (multi select) choice column to record in excel

Hello Everyone, 

I have my SharePoint list with multi-select choices (Assigned person) column and record it in my excel. However, the result is it writes another row with the same ID. Please see the below flow.

 

Hoping for your help. Thanks in advance

PS: I'm not a programmer, am just doing this to ease the burden of manual recording.

Albert

Hi Levi,

I've just changed the "empty" into the "body" of the filter array. It's now working perfectly. Thank you so much for the help.

Hi Levi,

Please see the latest update from my Flow, I've changed some of the parameters. Hope this would help others with the same problem as me.

 

Select: Same as your recommendation

Join: "body('Select")

 

Filter Array:

*From: Value

Item() is equal to "triggerOutputs()?['body/Id'] 

 

Condition: body('Filter_array') is equal to "true"

Hi Levi,

 

I've recreated this flow unfortunately when I add an action (select) and choose the "Assign person" it will be under the "Apply to each". How will I separate this without being under by "Apply to each"?

Hi @wolfgang001 

 

You need to select the dynamic content Assign Person in the From of Select(not Assign Person Value ).

to remove the apply to each, will I apply again the "Assign person" not the "Assign person value"?

Will try again Levi..Thanks

Hi Levi, 

It is now working, but when I change the "progress status" from (Not Started) to (In Progress). It writes another row. I think the "Update Row" is not working properly.

Hi @wolfgang001 

  

I think the problem is in the Condition, the Condition result is true causing the flow to only add new rows instead of updating rows.

Can you provide the parameters in the string function in Filter array and the parameters in the empty function in Condition?

 

Best Regards,

Levi

Hi Levi, here's the details.
 
String:
string(triggerOutputs()?['body/ID'])
 
Condition:
empty(body('Filter_array'))

Hi @wolfgang001 

  

The problem is caused by the empty Filter array.

The filter conditions you used in the Filter array did not filter out the results, so the Condition always returns true, resulting in only adding new rows but not updating them.

1. This may be because the Id field in Excel contains spaces. You can try to use the trim function on the ID field of Excel in the Filter array.

2. It may also be because the Id field is a numeric type, you can try to use triggerOutputs()?['body/ID'] directly in the Filter array instead of string(triggerOutputs()?['body/ID'])

 

Best Regards,

Levi

1. This may be because the Id field in Excel contains spaces. You can try to use the trim function on the ID field of Excel in the Filter array.

 

Can you show me how this will be written?

Hi Levi,

I've just changed the "empty" into the "body" of the filter array. It's now working perfectly. Thank you so much for the help.
