Dynamic file reference in Excel Online (Business) Create Table

 

I attempted to add a dynamicly created file reference for my action "Excel Online (Business) Create Table".

 

When I add file statically, the file reference is listed as:

/Lead Uploads/20190905 Leads 2.xlsx

However, when I use output from CreatedFilenameWithPath compose action, I get:

/Shared Documents/Lead Uploads/20190905 Leads 2.xlsx

I created CreatedFilenameWithPathNoShareFolderRef compose action with following expression:

Expression:
substring(outputs('CreatedFilenameWithPath'),17,sub(length(outputs('CreatedFilenameWithPath')),17))
Output:
/Lead Uploads/20190905 Leads 2.xlsx

This is the desired outcome of the expression, however, it is not accepted in the testing for the Create Table action.

Is there a limitation of using dynamic files, or do I have to use a different expression?

Re: Dynamic file reference in Excel Online (Business) Create Table

Hi @Dennis727 ,

 

The dynamic content in the File field is not supported in the "Create Table" action in microsoft flow, we could only choose a file from the File Browse in the "Create Table" action.

 

Best regards,

Hi @v-alzhan-msft,

Thanks for the response. Not the outcome I was hoping for, however, I will try another avenue.

thanks,
