Zapier Error "Unknown Field Name"

Any Zapier users out there? I am building a fairly simple automation bouncing data from one table to another within the same base and get this error message:


With the following script I can get the field’s name:

let field1 = base.getTable("Interest Topic Queue").getField("fldLXMiq8BuPkCJXJ");

…and it is indeed on the table being written to - a single select field called “Source table.” As you can see in the picture, Zapier sees it is there.

I’ve used this receiving field the same way in several other Zaps (essentially I am making a junction table to collate data from several other tables and I use the single select field to denote either the table name or if there was an update processed from the source.)

Any suggestions?

LoL :grinning_face_with_sweat:

It’s time to call it a weekend - turns out I was referencing the Source record ID for the record to update, not the destination’s record ID
