So, I have successfully created a Table in an Excel with one Worksheet by using the "Create table" action from Excel Online (Business) connector, targeting as "Table range" the following:
Now I manually add a second Worksheet (named Hoja2) and modify the Flow, so in "Create table" I target as "Table range" the following:
Flow executiong fails.
My Flow is extremely simple, please find enclosed a screenshot
Is this use case (i.e. targeting an specific worksheet) currently supported?
Thank you in advance!
I assume that Hoja2 is the Sheet name. let’s say that the table that you are going to create has the same name with the worksheet. In the Table name field, please enter the worksheet name and try again.
I have made the following test. There are several sheets in the list, now I am going to format Sheet5 as a table. In the Table name field, enter the sheet name and it just works fine.
Thanks for the tip!
Not sure I understood you. I have followed your advice and verified that:
-if I add a new worksheet manually, leave as the first worksheet on the right, and then execute the flow, the table is created on the first worksheet on the right, no matter the name assigned to the Table. So if I create a new Worksheet named Hoja3, leave it on the right; then execute the flow attempting to create Table named "Hoja5", the Table is created on Worksheet named Hoja3.
-if I add two new worksheets manually (Hoja4 and Hoja5, where Hoja5 is the first worksheet on the right), and then execute the flow targeting a new table name, the new table is not created on the first worksheet on the right (Hoja5) but on Hoja4, no matter the name assigned to it.
-If I execute the flow again, targeting a new table name, expecting new Table would be created on Hoja5, however flow execution fails. If I execute the flow again changing the range to avoid overlappings, the new Table is created on Hoja4.
Am I missing something? If not, current implementation looks a bit weird
Thanks again for your help!
I've been trying to create tables in a particular worksheet for some time now.
I don't know if it's relevant, but I'm using the Excel online (Enterprise, not onedrive) - Create table.
My personal notes on the matter:
- It seems that the table is created in the Active Worksheet (dependant on which sheet was active the last time the excel file was saved)
- It doesn't matter the name specified for the table (at least in my case)
- I got it working by specifying the Worksheet name in the table range, similarly to what was initially stated in this post.
So in the table range field you would use (very important to be precise with ' and ! symbols):
WORKSHEET_NAME = Name of the desired worksheet as seen in excel
AX:BY = Range desired for the table, A,B = Columns, X,Y = Rows
Hope this helps
I have a problem where.
I have a document that I receive per email, and I had to archive the attachment in one folder. However, I have to take the information from one worksheet to another Excel. the problem is, the attach do not have any table created and I have tried several approaches unsuccessful.
this is base on the last comment.
Could you please help me?
If your challenge is to build an excel table on an excel file which originally didn't have, this article covers the topic
If you face problems when implementing it, my suggestion is to open a new thread. Most superusers tend to pay attention to new unanswered topics, and this seems to have several replies already
