For a selected row in Excel - No specific table

I am trying to send emails based on information kept in tables.


Every week we create a new sheet within the Excel file and add new information. Once a week we want to generate an email for the information kept in the table on the new sheet. How can I create my flow so that no specific table is selected?

Do you want to trigger the flow in the "For a selected row" trigger? I am afraid there is no way to get dynamic specific tables in triggers.

Thanks for the reply.

Until recently we had a flow that was able tyo achieve this. Starting in early January this flow stopped working as the Excel file name changed. I can't understand why this type of flow worked previously but now won't work.

Here was the previous trigger I had:



Hi @EricVie ,


You could try to manually select a new Excel file and Excel table name in the "For a selected row" trigger. The "For a selected row" trigger needs to specify the Excel file. You could refer this link:
