When imlementing the Flow, it generate the xx.xlsx fie correctly, but when trying to open it in Excel generates an error.

I have reviewed some posts on this topic.. and have seen the File Content row that in principle would be fine.

Hello @sbar ,

I'm not sure if .xlsx file isn't too complicated to create it from a raw data. Try to create .csv file instead of .xlsx, that might work.

Or instead of creating file each time create a 'template' file somewhere in OneDrive, create a copy of that 'template' .xlsx file and update the rows you want into it.

Hello tom_riha


I have tried creating a .csv file but it has not worked.


However, following your advice to make a template and create the .xlsx file has been the solution.


Thank you!!
