A table can't overlap another table Error 400

I have been struggling with this flow for a while now and need some help.

What I am trying to do is get a SharePoint list view into an Excel Online (Business) table and then email it out to a group. This would happen on a schedule every Wednesday.

I have not done this successfuly and keep getting errors and the most recent one is A table can't overlap another table Error 400. This seems like it should be a very simile process but have proven not to be the case.

I use the "Get items" action and limit the columns by View to the specific view I want. Then I use the "Create Table" action. What am I doing wrong? Is it possible to do what I am wanting to do? Thank you!

I suspect that your problem is that you are running the Flow repeatedly while testing. Since there is no action to delete a Table in Flow you are probably trying to input a new table into the same rows and columns where you already created one.  Before you create your table make sure you do a Get Table and see what ranges other tables are using.  Then make sure your new table is outside of those ranges.

After each test, I delete the table and then try again. It creates the table but there is no data in it except for some random data in the first column heading. 

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Could you share a screenshot of the Flow configuration?

If you want to insert data into a table, it needs to be created in advance.

If it is created by Flow, it may not be directly configured in Add a row into a table. Here we need to manually select the existing Excel file and table from the browse.
