Null values from excel

There are two columns in an excel sheet I'm trying to take in data from. The first one gives me a null value when I reference it, and the second one works properly. There's no difference in my implementation of the calls to the cells, and yet one gives me the correct "" value, and the other gives me null. Regardless of what kind of data is put into Fresh water, it will give me an error, and yet waste water is always fine. What could be causing this?

This photo is the output from the compose, "click to download" is part of the problem i'm having.

This photo is what value is being passed into the document I'm exporting the info to.

Re: Null values from excel

Discovered that there were spaces before the column titles, and flow needs the first thing to be a character.

Re: Null values from excel

Have you verified that the Excel table columns are formated the same within the Excel file? If you could provide an expanded screenshot of your Flow and steps, and of any detailed error messages you're receiving we could likely better assist you.
