Hi all!

I created a form where the user choses a linked record (from the same table as the record that will be created once he submits the form). 

Then, I need an automation that updates some of the fields of that linked record (pulling information from formula fields of the record that was created).

So I created the following automation:

- When a form is submitted:

- Update record:

        - I choose, in the field Record ID, the linked record and choose the Display Property ID)


        - I select the Field I need to update, referencing the Formula field of the newly created record).


When I test the automation, I get the result  "Received invalid inputs" - the Record ID isn't found.

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you!

Hm that's really weird, what you've done looks right to me.

I've created a working copy here in case it would be helpful for you to have a comparison
