Problem creating Excel file, after updating Excel Online Row

1.

 have created at Excel Online spreadsheet, and i use Power Automate  and "Update Row" to change information in a row in a table. This update works well. 

2.

After the row update, i use Sharepoint "Get contet" to  read the file content, from the file where i updated the Table, and then use Sharepoint "Create file" to create a new file.  

 

My problem is: Information changed in first file, is not in the new file. It seems to be a delay?. 

 

When i go to the library and open the file i changed in no 1, the changes are written to the file.  (I have also copied the file in the automate, but still the same problem)  So the problem exist if i read file content, or copy in the automate. 

 

Any idea how to handle this, so i can update tables and create new file. ?

 

Here is the Power automate steps.

Hi @TrulsB ,

 

I did a test on my side. I think this is caused by the delay.

You could add a delay action to solve it.

I added a delay for 30seconds, but still the same problem.

Hi @TrulsB ,

 

I added a delay for 5 minutes before and it worked.

I guess the delay time is too short.
