Calculate Field on Records Selected by Location in Modelbuilder not Calculating

I have created a model and I have added a 'Select by Location' query to select records from a polygon feature class that lies outside of another polygon feature class.


So, I set the selection to choose all feature from the first polygon feature class 'WITHIN' the second polygon feature class and then set the 'Selection Type' to 'SWITCH_SELECTION' to get the feature outside.


I then use the 'Calculate Field' using the output of the select by location above, as an input to calculate a field called 'Comment' with the string 'Area2 outside of Area1' in hopes that it will only calculate the selected features.


It is not doing this. It's calculating all the records. How to I only calculate the selected records?
