Move Lookup Column To Text Column

This issue is really getting on my nerves because it makes no sense at all!!!!! I am using Nintex Workflow and SharePoint 2013. This should be a simple thing but as always simple things never turn out simple.

 

I have some columns in a list that are copied to a list in another site based on certain circumstances. One of those columns is a lookup. It worked fine. Well I needed another lookup column copied to that same list in the other site. This should be simple because it is currently working I just need this other one to do the same thing. Now in the source list it is a lookup and the target list is a string/text. Again, there is no problem with the one lookup. When I try to make the other column do the same thing it doesn't work. I get an error message that says something "Coercion Failed: Unable to transform the input lookup data into the requested type". Keep in mind, it wasn't doing it with the other lookup and I have it working the same way. I even have it doing it the same way in the "Create item in another site" action. I even went to another area where I play and test things. I made a lookup value copy to a text/string in another list - no error!!!! Someone please tell me what's wrong with this thing before I get a sledge hammer!!! :O
