Where does your Excel file live? Can you try things like Get Table ( use either the OneDrive or Sharepoint Excel connector for this)

My File was made in the desktop app, and is saved onto my desktop. I'm quite New to o365, where can I get "Get Table"

Microsoft Flow cannot get to your desktop.

 

When you select your actions in Flow if you search for Excel you will find 3 connectors.

Sorry, My document is actually in OneDrive. I found "Get Tables" and I am testing it again.

 

Thank You

Ok, it looks like there is somehting wrong with the format of the excel file.

 

Can you try a create table in flow so that Flow creates your excel file in one drive? Then compare the format of the file.

Hi @ SodexoJon,

 

I'm afraid that it's the dynamic content of the trigger "Powerapps" in the "Insert row" action that cause the flow to run failed.

 

Could you please take a try to insert some custom value instead of dynamic content of the trigger "Powerapps" inside every field of the "Insert row" action to see if the issue still exists.

 

Please let me know if the error still exists.

 

 

Regards,
Alice Zhang

Hi Alice,

 

I was able to remove excel from the flow and then manually go into my excel sheet and connect it to sharepoint.

 

Thanks!
