Excel Connector: Add a row using File ID Failed

I got stuck while using Excel Connector, "Add a row into a table".

I need to add a flow using the connector with dynamic excel files.

I referenced to the information below and successfully get the file ID of the excel file.

However when I use it in my flow, it get error:

I set up a parallel step and compare between using dynamic file or choose file directly in the step.

I cannot found any difference in the "show input raw ".

"Show input raw" - Success: direct choose file

"Show input raw" - Failed: use expression to fill up dynamic file ID

Please kindly advice what I did wrong on the settings.

Thanks.

Peek Code of both steps are provided below.

I can only found the system has added metadata information at the end of the code (circled in red) after i choose the file. But i don't think it is related to my issue now.
