Create a new Excel table and then add rows to it within the same Flow

Whenever a user creates a SharePoint list item, I want to 1) create a new Excel workbook, 2) create a new Excel table in that workbook, and then 3) populate the new table with data from the SP list item.

I can perform each of these steps independently, the problem is that I cannot seem to add rows to an Excel table that I created earlier in the same flow - it does not appear as a dropdown option, and lookup references all fail.

Does anyone know any workaround for this?

Re: Create a new Excel table and then add rows to it within the same Flow

Hi @awheeler ,

 

Thanks for feedback.

 

It is currently not possible to use dynamic content in Excel file field to perform operations from newly created Excel files.

 

There is a similar request at here, please vote the idea:

PGs will take hot ideas into consideration first in future releases.
