Set Field value action not finding Library fields

  • This should be easy.

    I just want to set a field called 'View Change' to '1' but when I click on 'Set' on the action I don't get the fields I need from the Sharepoint library. I've done this before on other workflows, just pointed the Set Field action to the field in the Sharepoint list. Is it because I'm using a Library? 

    Instead I get 'Content Type/IS Reference Number/Name/Title'.

     IS Ref is one of the fields in the library. What am I doing wrong?  

    I'm using Nintex cloud and Sharepoint 2016

Did you maybe create a reusable workflow (for the wrong content type)?

I don't know. How would I find out?

Normally I would check the Workflow Settings page. If it's a reusable, then there should be a disabled Content Types setting showing which content type the workflow is intended for. And reusable workflows are created via the same Nintex menu where you also create Site workflows..

Hi Jean

I've checked and can't see the Content Types setting. What I can see is below. I clicked on Association Columns, added a Test column and it showed up in the Set Drop down in the Set Field Value action.

Yes, but that will add a new column to your list as well. Unless that is what you want. And what if you try to use Update Item instead? Using the list and filter on ID = Lookup/Current Item/ID? would that allow you to see the fields?
