Help with appending a Sharepoint List (Create Item) from an Excel Table (List Rows Present...)



What I'm trying to do:


Use a Flow to First delete then add items to a Sharepoint list for each row in an excel table that's stored on OneDrive Business. The delete part is working fine so I'm focusing on what isn't, the appending.


What I need help with:


Here's what I have set up for this one:




The list rows setup:



Then the Apply to Each:




Okay, here's the problem. It does seem to be pulling in all the columns on the List, so that's perfect. It also is pulling all the columns on the Excel (they're all suggested by dynamic content), but the dynamic content is only showing up fro the first two fields (in this case, "Region" and "Director", the other fields do not list the dynamic content. I manually creadted them like this:


items('Apply_to_each_2')?['Column Name'] 


And it is not recongizing that as valid. I have the exact same column name on the Sharepoint List (created through List Settings, so it is a true name), and the excel sheet. What I don't get is that it is pulling in these suggestions on those first two fields, just not the later ones, see below:




What do I need to change?


Thank you for the assistance.

Hey I got it working!


I forgot to add the expression in the expressions area and hit "OK". That did work, for instance:




But, why is dynamic content not suggesting more than the first two? That would save a lot of time.

Hi @Stone_Database,


Thanks for sharing and updating.

I am glad that you have figure it out and it is working for you now.

I found that sometimes we need to use the function items to get item from the previous actions. It is always working fine.
