Excel Online (Business) Not listing file that I need



I'm trying to put together a relatively simple flow that updates a tracker (excel file) on a sharepoint site.  I already use the same function in other flows with no issue.


I'm using the action - Add a row into a table


I'm able to set the location and the document library with no issues, but when I browse to find the file that I need it's not listed.  There are a large number of excel files in the folder and it only lists quite a small number of them, so it isn't just the file that I need not listed.


I can't see any relationship between the files that are listed, seems to be random.  The file I'm looking for is checked in, approved and live.


Anyone got any ideas on how to fix?

Hi @bangorkeith,


Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Could you please share more details about your issue?


I could not reproduce your issue on my side currently, please check if the Excel file that you want to select is existed in the document library that you specified within the "Add a row into a table" action.


In addition, please take a try to clear cache of your browser and try your flow again to check if the issue is solved.



Best regards,

Hi Kris,


I can't share a screenshot unfortunately.  I moved the excel file to a different sharepoint library within our business and it was able to find it there, so I think it must be some sort of settings issue with the library itself?   I don't know what setting would prevent me from seeing some excel files and not others though.


I also cleared the cache on my computer and tried it on other computers in the office and it didn't work.
