Pulling Excel Data from Newly Uploaded File and Pasting in Email

Hey Flow Community,

 

I'm new to Flow, so bear with me! I'm trying to pull information out of an Excel spreadsheet and paste it into an email as part of an approval flow. I've got the flow working well at the moment, but as soon as I try to add any Excel related items, it stops working. I'm not sure which Excel action to add, but I can't seem to figure out the "Key Value" field in the "Get Row" action of Excel Online (Business).

 

I essentially want to pull the content of the form out and paste it into the body of the inital approval email. I want to use Dynamic content for the Excel action as it will change everytime a file is uploaded.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi @ITandCoffee,

 

Does the updated file is the excel that you want to pull the content  out and paste it into the body of the inital approval email?

 

If the updated file is the excel that you mentioned, I afraid that you couldn't get the row of the excel, the "Get a row" action require a excel file that could be choosed from the Picker,however, the new uploded file couldn't be choosed from the Picker.

 

If the updated file isn't the excel that you mentioned, you could refer to screenshot below to create the flow:
