Hi there,

I have this automation I have built and it looks right to me and passes the test. The test data populates in the destination table. But when I manually enter data into the source table nothing happens.

Here is the automation:

 This is the destination table. The Article Number "F25NSECVR" was populated when I ran the test.

This is the source table. I manually entered "F25TEST" and nothing happened.

When the record is created, all of the fields are blank, so the automation run does not pass the test. You will need to use a different trigger or create your record using a form. One possible trigger is “when record meets conditions” and put the test for the text in the condition for the trigger.

Thank you so much! It took me a minute to figure out what you were trying to explain but now I get it. Posting the setup here in case it's helpful for anyone else.
