Copy document meta data between libraries

Occasional Contributor

Hi all.  I'm trying to copy documents from Library A to Library B (which is in a different site) whilst retaining all the meta data.  It's working fine apart from the meta data which uses Lookup columns in Library A.  Is there a way to get around this please?

Hello @OzOscroft 

 

there is no OOTB way available for cross site collection lookups. I think Power Apps works for that.

 

For your case to copy i found this article:

Thanks @David Mehr, much appreciated.  I've decided to take a slightly different approach by using Power Automate to write the information from the Lookup fields into normal text fields which copy between sites fine.
