Update URL field

OK Guys I am going crazy, I am so sure this should work. I have a workflow that is attaching a url to a different list. Let me be specific. When a document is added to a document library, a workflow runs and sees if the document metadata has a choice column set to a specific value. If it does then it grabs the title from a lookup filed and goes to the list that value was just looked up from. It uses build string to build a url followed by a comma then a space then the word Others. So the string looks like http://www.google, Others. Then I do an update item and attempt to update the a url field on the target list with the string http://www.google.com, Others. I keep getting the error: The workflow could not update the item, possibly because one or more columns for the item require a different type of information.

 

I have tried my update item with the workflow variable as a url, or as a string(default), but no luck. In other areas of this workflow I am updating the list in different ways if the choice field is different, so it is not permissions. I have seen countless posts saying all you have to do to update a url field is put in the URL, Description, but it is simply not working for me.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
