Can you post a screen shot of your Flow please.

 

If you are updating a document, can you check to see if the library is configured to require checkout.

 

As far as I know, you shouldn't have to check out a document.

 

Here is an example where I create and update a document without checking it out.

Hi @ScottShearer ,

 

Thanks for your guide to let me know the action with don't need to checking out.

I'm stuck in a similar case, can you give me some instruction? I were open the new Subject. (https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Connecting-To-Data/SharePoint-setting-require-check-out-before-e...)

My issue is Excel file in SharePoint needs to be check-out when SharePoint library versioning settings been check-out, but Flow can't capture the table info from SharePoint, so Flow action display error! I show the photos step to step to explain my issue:

 

Below photo is SharePoint Library Versioning Setting becomes edit before check-out:

Below photo is the Flow can't capture table from Excel on Add a row/updated action with setting require check-out before edit:

check out-Nok1_Capture.JPG

Below photo is the Flow can recognize Excel table info for user to input expression for Add a row or update the Excel rows, this is no setting with requires check-out before edit:

I has run the SharePoint "check-out file" action before running the Excel add a row/update action, but still can't let the flow read the table info in one flow, please refer to below photo:

Do you know how to fix it? Please advise, thank you.
