Get one record from a sharepoint list which matches another record, add to table in Excel

I am creating a flow which takes a record submitted via Powerapps to a SharePoint List (MatrixResponses) and inputs this into an Excel template to email to the user; the same flow takes records from a 2nd SharePoint list (TrainingMatrix) and lists these records on the same Excel template so the responses submitted can be compared with one another by the user.

 

At the moment, this is done by 'Get Items' then 'Add a row to table', see screenshot

This means that the entire TrainingMatrix list is transferred to the Excel file which isn't ideal. 

 

Both lists have a column called 'P Number' and these P numbers refer to the same person. I want my flow to lookup the record in TrainingMatrix which matches the P number in MatrixResponses and only add that row to the Excel sheet. Is there a way to do this?

 

I tried using 'Switch' but couldn't use Dynamic Content for the match so that didn't work.

 

Any help is appreciated!

Hi @misc ,

 

Try using filter queries on the SharePoint get items action.
