Update a variable column in a list item

Question asked by seriyuuu on Sep 27, 2018

Hello,

I have a list set up with something like this:

Let's say we have 10 columns named "A" to "J". I have another column "lastChanged" that stores the name of the column that was last modified.

I want to have a workflow that removes the previous value using the lastChanged column, and updates a different column with the new value.

The issue is that the Update Item action does not let you pick the column to update using a variable. I've tried using web service calls as well but I was unable to update the columns without manually finding and inputting the column's internal name.

 

Is there a way to get internal column names through Nintex? Or is there a better way of doing this?

 

Thanks in advance.
