MS Form Multiple Choice to Multiple Choice SP List Column

Hello! I am trying to transfer a multiple choice answer from an MS form where more than one option is allowed to a column with mulltiple choice SP list. I've done some research and I think i found out how to do it with this link : Solved: Record multiple choice Form answers in a SharePoin... - Power Platform Community (microsoft..... However, when I attempt to use the action "initialize variable" i receive the following message: the operation 'initialize variable' can only be use at top level.  image below.





is this an internal issue? as in i don't have high enough access in power automate/flows? if so, is there another work around? i would like to be able to automate the multiple choice answers in the form to appear as difference choices in the list with different colors like below



Thank you in advance!

It sounds like you are trying to initialize a variable inside of a loop which is not permitted.  Initialize the variable outside of and before the loop.  Take a look at the lick you posted and note where they have initialized the variable.
