Error Message: A value must be provided for item ID for Updating Excel Rows

I have an excel table where every other row has information in it and when I run the automation to Trim Names, it gives me an error and bad request for every row where there isn't any inputs. Is there any way to solve this issue?

 

Error on the left, flow on the right:

Re: Error Message: A value must be provided for item ID for Updating Excel Rows

Hello,

Consider defining a key column with a unique value that is always present, for example ID.

Technically you wouldn’t want a Key column to be empty. Because there would be no way to reference it.

Hi @bsmith736464 

 

 

You can add an IF condition before the update action step to check whether Lastname is blank or not.
