Insert row to Excel online, do a calculation, pull the same row

The task: 

push data from MS form to Excel-OneDrive,

the Excel needs to do calculations using vlookup

then pull data from Excel to use later in the flow.


Solution-1 on the left, and the issue

The excel file has a column with a vlookup calculation.

The function overwrites the whole row, deleting the vlookup.

I'm using 'add row to a table' in excel, which it seems overwrites the whole row including the column with the calculation


Idea for the solution-2 on the right:

Have Table1, and Table2 which references table 1 and does the Vlookup

Table 1 gets updated , Table 2 picks up the right information , does the vlookup and the last row from Table2 is pushed forward in the flow. The issue with this option is that the 'add row' seems to insert the row, shifting the index in Table2, and then the table2 doesn't pick up the right information.


Any suggestions how to accomplish the task?
