Create a Worksheet and a table in Excel - Excel Business Connector

So, I have successfully created a Worksheet in an Excel with one Worksheet by using the "Create worksheet" action from Excel Online (Business) connector. The Excel file before creating it was quite simple, it just have an empty Worksheet; so now it has two.

 

Then I add an additional action block; "Create table", targeting as "Table range" the following:

A1:E1. I was unsure if the table would be created inside the original Worksheet or in the one created via Flow (I already opened a related discussion here https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/Create-Table-in-Excel-with-two-Worksheets/m-p/162... )

 

However, I am getting an error when the second action block is executed, so Worksheet is created but Table is not.

 

Is this combination (Excel Business- Create Worksheet followed by Excel Business-Create Table) currently supported in the same Flow?

 

Thank you in advance!

Hi @efialttes,

 

I did a test on my side, first created a Worksheet, then created a Table, it successfully ran, created a Table in the specified Worksheet.

I am wondering if this is what you want to do.

Then I use Get Tables to output the name of the Table, which is also the one I specified earlier.

Thanks @v-bacao-msft for sharing an example! I replicated your flow and it worked, finally realized my problem was related to the Table Name format I was using. Either I need to add at least one letter; or I shall not reuse nema of the worksheet to name the table
