Iterate Feature Selection Value Unusable for Input In-line Variable Substitution

I've built a model in which I'd like to use an in-line variable substitution from the 'Group by' variable from a Feature Selection iterator. However, Model Builder doesn't appear to pull the value from the input table while editing which invalidates the input parameter for one of my tools. Please see the attached image; note that the indicated value is '1' when the first value from the input features should be '07EE001'. I have also repeatedly verified that valid inputs exist as per: "Z:\Joe_C\BULK_Catchment_Delineation\Stream_Lines\07EE001_PrimaryDirectedNLFlow.shp"

At run-time, the value is extracted and used properly in the output paths of other tools but obviously the invalid tools fail to run at all. I have used this technique successfully with 'Iterate Raster', but no matter what I do this value is unavailable for the validation of my 'Project' tool. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
