Add a key column to a table? (Excel Online (Business)

I am trying to use "Add a key column to a table".  It creates a blank column in the table but does not populate it.  What is the point of this action if it doesn't populate the column? Am I missing something?  Is there a way to populate the column after it is created?

Hello @Ben_Z 

I looked at the documentation and it doesn't say much 🙂 But looking at all the actions, my guess is that it is mostly used when you have created a new table using Power Automate and then need to add a key column to the table, before you start populating it.

Just a guess, maybe someone more knowledgable about this could comment!

Kind regards, John
