Trigger condition for choice field and single line text

I have a SharePoint task list with a column called " Technology", it is a choice field and I have another column i.e. " Previous Technology", which is a single line text.

I want a trigger condition in the Power Automate when the Technology value is not equal to the Previous technology value. It triggers: when a file is created or modified.

For example, if the technology value is Power Automate and previous technology is also power automate, then the flow will not trigger, else it will trigger.

And I have tried the below trigger condition


I don't receive any error, but flow ran when technology = previous technology

Any help would be much appreciated!

Hi @Sonu123 

If you want to reference the user’s selection on the Choice Field, you have to use the Choice Field's “Value”,the value is a text.

Please change the trigger condition to the following and try again.

@not(equals(triggerOutputs()?['body/Technology/Value'], triggerOutputs()?['body/PreviousTechnology']))


Hope the content above may help you.

Best Regards

Thank you for your reply, I have tried your formula i.e @not(equals(triggerOutputs()?['body/Technology/Value'], triggerOutputs()?['body/PreviousTechnology']))

 Still, I am getting the same infinity loop error after adding the above trigger condition

Here you can see my flow
