Skip function to Skip files in Get File Content

When using SharePoint libraries (not lists), is the Skip function available?  Lists show it as available, but in my example below, it is not. I tried to manually add it to the Top Count or the Filter Query using Skip(Column_Name, #) where # is the number of files/rows to skip, but it returned an invalid error message.

 

One reason for using Skip is to avoid the dreaded SharePoint 5,000 item limit (another topic), by skipping unwanted file records from the beginning of the file.

Re: Skip function to Skip files in Get File Content

No, skip is not part of the SharePoint File step parameters. For similar functionality with the SharePoint Files steps, you would utilize OData, and OData filtering and ordering. Check out this Filtering Data with OData Microsoft Flow blog post, you'd input the OData logic into the fields below: ODataFilter.png

Re: Skip function to Skip files in Get File Content

Thanks very much.  Yes, I have used oData filtering and querying as an option, using "ID desc" to start at the bottom of a list/most recent files, and various filters.  I was just hoping the Skip function could be used directly here, but it appears not.
