Update file properties for a Lookup field

Hi

 

When attempting to update the value of a lookup field in a document library, it's only possible to specify a list item (see below).

 

My requirement is to update the field with a list item determined earlier in the flow.  Unfortunately, Dynamic Content is not available to do this.

Am I missing something?

 

Thanks.

If I understand correctly, you want to update a lookup column with a value from earlier in your Flow.  To do so, go to the bottom of the values presented and select "Enter Custom Value"  Then provide the value from earlier in your Flow.

If this is not what you are looking for, please let me know.

Oh my goodness!  My list is over 30 items long so I didn't think of scrolling down to the bottom!

 

Many thanks Scott 🙂
