Error when trying to list rows in excel table

I am working on a flow to receive an excel file as an email attachment and then to upload each record from the file into a sharepoint list. So far, I am continually running into the following error message when trying to retrieve the rows in the table:


The request is forbidden by Graph API. Error code is 'AccessDenied'. Error message is 'Could not obtain a WAC access token.'.


Any thoughts on how I can resolve? The highlighted portion of the flow is where the error occurs.

Hello @tlevine 

It seems you are creating the file in a SharePoint site, but on the other hand, the location of the excel file says "Group" instead of "SharePoint":


 Hope it helps!

It seems its trying to get the location of the file via its browser based URL (Office web apps).  I am not sure you will be successful in the way you're doing it given limitations in the Excel actions unfortunately as I understand they don't support dynamic fields.  Here's a blog with the only workaround I am aware of though there may be others.  


Also, I don't know how you can guarantee that the files you receive always have a table in it (which the connectors require).  Are you filtering the email trigger to only fire if it contains attachments as well?
