I am trying to create a list item in List 2, when List 1 form is submitted. But I'm getting below error

The workflow could not update the item, possibly because one or more columns for the item require a different type of information".

I think the error is because of the Path and Name field. I tried various options listed in other posts, but no positive results.


Here is the screenshot of the error and workflow.

Here the if part executes but the else part fails. enter image description here

  • Path and Name field is added automatically when I do a create item action. And I supplied the URL which doesn't work.
