Re: Want to update SPLIST metadata column values from excel.

Hi @Eswar1 ,

 

Thanks for providing the detailed screenshot.

 

In action Update item, you should select dynamic content ID from action Get items, but not from Current item.

 

Please check the following flow configuration for a reference.

 

In action Get items, I am using Filter query to filter out items that have the same title.

Re: Want to update SPLIST metadata column values from excel.

Hi @Eswar1 is the list of terms in your Excel spreadsheet from the same tenancy as the SharePoint list you're trying to update? If not, the Unique Identified of your terms will differ from tenancy to tenancy. You can check this by going to the Term Store Management Tool and finding your term. At the bottom of the screen you'll see the identifier. If they mate, then please let me know and I'll try to dig a little deeper, but this is what I would check first.

@Eswar1 

I believe that your issue is that in the Update item action, you need to reference the ID of the item from Dynamic properties rather than "current item".

Re: Want to update SPLIST metadata column values from excel.

Hi @Eswar1 ,

 

Do you want to update SharePoint list managed metadata column with value from the Excel table?

 

If so, in the action Update item, you may need to select value from the Excel table but not from the list.

 

Please try again with it.

 

Best regards,

Mabel
