Action 'List_rows_present_in_a_table' failed

Hi, I create a OneDrive file from an excel attachment which I then want to read the row data from. The file name is dynamic content from the file creation in onedrive and the table name is static text 'Table1'. For some reason the List rows present in a table doesn't want to work and I cant figure out why.

Hello @Anonymous ,

the action 'List rows present in a table' needs the file unique identifier, not the file name. You should have the new file 'Id' among the outputs from the 'Create file' action, use it in the 'File' field.

Hi all,

 

I'm using a flow where an excel file is updated daily and I need to update in a sharepoint list the information that is updated. The problem that is occurring is that it loses the link with the table name after the first run. The error follows: "No table was found with the name '{00000000-000C-0000-FFFF-FFFF00000000}'." When the error occurs, change the name of the table in the List rows function present in a table.FlowFlowErrorError

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks

Hello @natalia_t ,

table name is just a string, and as such you can add a 'Compose' action before the 'List rows present in a table' and store the file name in the 'Compose' action. Then use the output of this 'Compose' as the table instead of a selection in the dropdown.

Hi @tom_riha ,

 

The error still persists. Here are screenshots of the Flow error and the file it captures to read the lines. The table is there with the corresponding name. Does the table header have any interference with this?2.PNG1.PNG
