Good morning Flow Experts!
I'd like to use Flow to email a subset of a larger Excel table to different users based on a Location value. The email addresses are saved in a separate Excel file. Thanks to the help from some users last week, I was able to create separate HTML tables, but now I'm struggling to get the email part of the project right.
After the Create HTML table step, I have added the Send an email step, but now it sends an email for every location to every email address listed! I have also tried to change the Apply to each output to "union(variables('Location'), variables('Location'))" because I thought it might be useful to "join" the table with the Email Information in, but I received a different error for that.
Can you please provide me with other things I can try? Do I need to join the tables before the Create HTML table step?
Here are data samples - I have two tables, and each of them have a Location field. I'd like to take the information from the Sample Data and email it to the corresponding Email address.
Hi @gemma ,
Could you please share a full screenshot of the configuration of your flow?
Would all the location have the same Email?

Hi @v-alzhan-msft !
Thank you for getting back to me. All the locations will have different email addresses, but I've plugged in my email address for now for testing purposes!
Here are screenshots of all of the elements related to creating the table and sending the emails.
Hi @v-alzhan-msft !
I've made some progress, but now I'm stuck on a different part of the flow. I've successfully joined my two tables, but I'm having trouble filtering it by location, especially now that my Location variable is a multi-dimensional array instead of a single item. How can I change my Apply to Each expression to fix this issue?
@v-bacao-msft, thank you so much for helping me with a similar issue last week! Can you also offer me some advice with this?
I'm slowly working through my issue, and I'm now able to get the table that I want! I'm on the Send and Email step, and I'd like to put in the email address from the Create HTML Table step. What kind of expression can I use to get the email address from the table?
I'm using this expression:
