Update item column in list A with a item column value from list B within a workflow loop


Trying to update a item column with the value from another list within a workflow loop based on a matching value from both lists.

however this does not work. It only works if you manually run the worklow for each item in the when a change occurs. but it will not work within a loop action.  I will appreciate any solutions on how to make this work within  a workflow loop. a photo of the workflow of what I'm trying to do is below. Thank you!

Hi @jvergara56,


Thanks for posting in Microsoft Flow forum!

Your scenario would require Nested Apply to each if you use Microsoft Flow, which is not supported currently. 


If you are using SharePoint workflow designer, then please take a look at the blog below, see if ti would help to solve your issue.
