Error message from automation to input linked record

Here is my error message: Screen Shot 2021-10-11 at 2.54.13 PM

In my automation, I have multiple linked columns in one table being entered into one linked column in the second base. Now these multiple columns are each a name in a record, “name 1”, “name 2”… etc. Often a record only has a few names (it could have 1 out of 5).

My automation succeeds only when 4/5 or 5/5 names are full, when there are only 1, 2 or 3 names in the record it fails.

Does anyone know why this is? To me it would make more sense for it to fail 5 out of 5 times but it only fails when there is less than 4 names…

Please share more specific details of your automation setup. Screenshots would be extremely helpful. It’s hard to know where to guide you until we know more details about where you are now.
