Hi @Gbolahan,


If the data in Excel has been formatted as table, then the data should be available to use in the Send an Email action.

Would you please share some data example here? Are all the column type static (without calculated column)?

My testing as below:

Fields defined in Excel works under my side.

Note: Excel Calculated column should be not supported.

Thank you for the response.


At first I had rows with formula, but then while the process ran. I was notified of the inablity of the process to go on with formula in the table. So no I do no longer have any. 


Now the email body would return, but the subject would not.


I attached the output of a particular get row request and it returned "NIL" which is the content of the row. But the subject is 0

Could it be the browser? Also how can I include email signature? Can I share the excel table with you?
