I have a list that appends comments so I have a historical view. I'd like to create a view of the list that only shows the most recent comment made in the two relevant fields, Actions Taken and Next Steps. I have created a SP 2010 work flow that basically runs

If Current Item:Comments matches regular expresion .+
     Update item in Current Item (Latest Comments = CurrentItem:Comments)
the Update item in Current Item (Latest Comments)

The workflow has a manual start.

I have a create a view that displays the Latest Comments field. Nothing is showing up though.

I'm using SP2013, online and SP Designer 2013.

Thoughts? Suggestions?
