Dynamically generate Excel filename with input parameter

I'm trying to let a user input a parameter. This parameter is a part of the excelname (This because it is, as far as I know, not possible to let a user select an excelfile and use this file in a flow: "cann't fill the required field in the -List rows present in a table- action"

 

I can construct a filename, but I receive an error that the table inside this excel file cann't be found if I use it .. 
I just tried to test if I can find the tables inside the excel file but this doesn't work.

 

Is it possible to dynamically do this? (either by selecting or bij constructing the filename (as I did below))

 

I use 

concat('TKD-20192020-',outputs('MakenFilenaam'),'.xlsx')

part of my flow:

Re: Dynamically generate Excel filename with input parameter

Hi @bgsca ,

 

Dynamically generate Excel filename in the File field is not supported in microsoft flow currently.

We could only select an excel file through the File Browse in the Excel online connector.
