Hi,

Problem:

The main problem is when I tried to create a table in the excel, in a specific worksheet the flow don't do nothing.

@ChristianAbata thank you for your answer.

 

But, how can I identify one worksheet from others?
I have several worksheets in the same excel. 

oh @Kamacete  is a worksheet is ok, mmm just to ask my friend your table name is called Source2 right?

With the example I just implemented, it is working fine.

THe potential differences I find are:

1.-It took to your flow 5 secs to read your Worksheets, in my case the excel was simple, it just took 1 sec. MAybe you should add a delay action block, let's say 10 secs in between, just in case.

2.- My excel file has a single Worksheet

3.- I defined two rows, you defined just once

4.- I use capital letters to define range

5.- I didn't add a semicolon at the end of the Column List

Hope this helps

Hi again

I just added manually a second sheet to my excel file, now my flow creates the table in 'Hoja1' instead of 'Hoja2'.

So either the error you got is a random one; or the delay is needed for bigger files than mine, or... how many excel sheets do you currently have in your excel file?

Thanx!

I have 4 worksheets, but maybe I see this from a wrong perspective.

 

Is there any way to get the information from the worksheet without a table and insert the data into an existing excel, with just a worksheet and table?

if yes, this solve my problem

 

@Kamacete  far as I know unfortunally not my friend just all the worksheets all the content
