I have an Automate task that I need to transfer to Automate The task works fine in 7 but in 8 it fails at the Loop through list step and throws and error "Variable "arrEach" could not be set".

Here's the task:

Can someone determine why the loop list isn't working. It does work in 7.

Would it be possible to post the version 7 task?

Did you copy the steps from v7 to v8 or did you import the task from v7 to v8?
