Sharepoint file update fails Error 423 - Loop to wait?

Each day I have an excel file that updates.. today it failed because its in use. How do I loop and wait? or is there a test to see if its in use? (the create is if someone deletes it...)

Re: Sharepoint file update fails Error 423 - Loop to wait?

Hi @StaticFX ,

As your description, when the file which you want to update is in using, the Update file action will be failed.

I have made a flow for your scenario.

I put the Update file action in the Do until condition, however when the file is in using, the action will failed in the first loop.

So I suggest you add a Delay action aftre the Update file action.

Then configure run after of the Delay action as 'has failed'.

Then update the file ahain.

Re: Sharepoint file update fails Error 423 - Loop to wait?

Hi All,

I don't know if that is the solution, but at least I had that problem "423". At first I had the file only "on-line" in SharePoint and also I tried on OneDrive. But those folders wasn't sync with my PC. 

I tried in one SharePoint Folder sync with my computer and the same Flow works, then I sync the folder where it was the original file and works too.

Hope help you.
