Error When Reading Excel when file is create

Hello, 

 

I need to create a Flow trigerred when a Excel file is created on a sharpoint site.  The second step is to read a table in the file that has been created.

 

I am uing the Get Tables Functions for Excel on line but I am not able to open the file.

 

I tried multiple dynamic values for the File function and none is working : 

- File Identifier : Status Code 400 - Bad Request

- File Name : Status Code 404 : Not Found

- Statsu Code 400 : Bad Resquest

 

How can I do ?

 

Thanks

Re: Error When Reading Excel when file is create

Hi @coutep,

 

I have made a test and the issue is confirmed on my side.

 

You could only choose a existing file from the File picker in the "File" field in Excel online (Business) connector in microsoft flow currently.

 

Manually enter a file path or identifier in the "File" field to get the file data is not supported in microsoft flow currently.I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.

So you couldn't get the excel data in the flow that would be triggered when the file is just created.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

Best regards,
