Create a table in an Excel file you have just added to Sharepoint using flow

I’m trying to create a Flow to take an attached excel file I receive each week with usage stats in it and automatically update these into our master excel files which feed some of our power BI analytics

 

The workflow I have so far is:

On new email

Create file to save attachment to Sharepoint folder (I have put in a filter because it is also saving the logo)

Create table - Create a table over the top of the data in this new spreadsheet (as data is always in the same format and I can therefore set a range). Stuck here

TBC Copy the data from attachment spreadsheet new table to selected table in master spreadsheet

TBC Delete attachment spreadsheet so new file can come in with same name next week.

 

My problem is I can’t get my Create table to locate the file I just added to my folder.  I though perhaps if each file had the same name it might identify it is i set file to the file name however, it's not identifying it. Any suggestions?
