Flow to Create New Item from Excel File in OneDrive for Business

Please help.


I configured a Flow that should run through an Excel file in OneDrive for Business.

The only action is to create new items from the rows in the excel file. The Flow apparently runs ok, but the last step never ends.

No error messsages.



12 minutes and still in the same step.

Re: Flow to Create New Item from Excel File in OneDrive for Business

Hi @rbuenrostro,


Do you create a flow from Flow menu of OneDrive for Business?

Could you please show a bit more about actions within your "Apply to each" action?

Further, how many records existed in your Excel file?


I have made a test on my side and don't have the issue that you mentioned. My flow's configuration as below:19.JPG

The flow works successfully as below:20.JPG


If you created your flow from the built-in template of Microsoft Flow, please consider take a try to create your flow from scratch, because sometimes there is something wrong when you use the built-in templates to create your flow.


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


Best regards,
