I would like to make a variable in a workflow to specific content in a column I call Parent List ID. However, when I try, the only dynamic content options I get are for the item ID. Why do I only get that one option? Do I have to use an expression to get the information from the right column? I tried using the item function, but that doesn't work.

Is your ParentID column on that list set up as a number type field?

I set mine up as a number type field with zero decimal places, and you can see that it is available in the dynamic content selection box:

I'm fairly sure what's happening is that when you specify the type of the variable, SharePoint/Flow is filtering out the available choices in the dynamic content to only ones of that same type, so you don't mismatch and throw errors.

Agree with Dylan, per my test if you set the variable as integer, it only accepts numbers column. Have a check on your Parent ID column type and the advanced settings of your trigger, make sure you are using a correct view including the parent ID column.
