Excluding records from a previous selection

Hi,

 

I'm getting some records from a query in SQL and I need to exclude from that selection records that are in an excel. Example: From SQL query I'm getting:

 

A, B, C

 

and on a Excel I have the record A, so I need to exclude the record A to continue with the flow. How can I do tht? Thanks for the help.

Hi @ezequiel 

 

There are different ways you could do this. You can use the excel OData Query Filter 'ne' (Not Equal). Another way you could try is the Filter Array with the value you want.

Hi @ezequiel ,

 

As @abm  said, the requirement that you mentioned could be achieved with microsoft flow, and you could take a try with the "Filter Array" action.

Please take a try and let know if you have any problem when you create the flow.

 

Best regards,

Hi Alice

 

Thanks for your email. Let me explain what I'm doing and I appreciate if you can tell me if this is right:

 

1. I'm getting values from a SQL query (10 Ids)

2. I have an excel that contains a column with IDs also 

3. I need to send an email (1 per ID) unless the ID is on the excel 

 

I'm getting the values from the SQL and the excel, I added the Filter Array, but I'm lost how to apply it. The problem I'm facing is how to have the flow skipping those IDs found on the Excel. I made the flow below thinking that only emails are being sent if the SQL value is not found on the Excel, but it is not working and the process keeps sending 10 emails.

 

Thanks
