Get Row Excel error

I am using the Get Row Excel Action in a flow.  If the Key value isn't found in 1 column, I retry following an error on another column, then another.

 

I am facing the following error when trying to lookup a value.   

 

"status"400,
  "message""Maximum number of identity column variants for a single table exceeded. Current '2', Maximum '2'. Up to '2' column name variants should be in use across workflows for one particular table.\r\nclientRequestId: ded05178-a2a3-4463-bea9-d630d3256a69\r\nserviceRequestId: eb01bf76-637a-493c-98bc-871afa6ad0b9;7cbd5d37-f28f-4a49-8e09-e1850d41296b;d9712d9c-bcd7-42b4-b8c4-a1facc078e2d",
  "error": {
    "message""Maximum number of identity column variants for a single table exceeded. Current '2', Maximum '2'. Up to '2' column name variants should be in use across workflows for one particular table."
  },

Hello, @IndySanghera! I'm trying to replicate the flow exactly like you have it! Would you please tell more of less what's the structure of your Excel table? The error message makes no sense to me, as you have the maximum amount of identity columns, but maybe the second part might gives us a clue. 

 

Cheers! 

In my excel sheet I have 3 columns that I can use for an identifier. If the first column doesn't contain the key, then I move to the next column (2nd), then the 3rd if it's not found in 2nd. The way I interpret the error and having read the limitations to reading an excel file, is that you cannot have more than 2 concurrent attempts to read check a column identifier. The excel file is essentially opened 3 times. 

 

The workaround I did for this was to create a 2nd excel file containing the 3rd column (plus other lookup information).

I got the exact same error. The flow objective is pretty much similar to @IndySanghera . Not sure if adding a delay between them helps?
