Problem with getting rows

Hello everyone.

 

I'm trying to build a Flow that get rows from a table in excel to put them in another table and clear the first table. 

This flow works until it delete the information from the first table, after that I get a message saying that my file is blocked. 

 

This is how my flow is built

Thank you.

Re: Problem with getting rows

Hi @RicardoMedina2,

 

Because the action you configure is to operate on the same Excel file, even if you use two different tables of data.

So when you use the Insert row action, the file will be checked out.

At this time, other people can't do anything else with this file, even if you Delete row action configured by your account.

Currently Flow does not have an action to check in the file, so there is no way to continue to add/delete rows and update the same file directly below.

You could consider adding a Delay action after Apply to each.

After all the insert row actions are executed, delay the execution of Delete row action for an hour. Because the file will be automatically checked in after a period of time.

Please take a try.
