The script couldn't create a connection with Excel.

Hi,
I have a flow that uploads the file into the Sharepoint site and then runs a script to make changes in the file.
But I'm receiving the following error, 
"We were unable to run the script. Please try again. The script couldn't create a connection with Excel"

I have realized that when a file created in the SharePoint library, the file is shown only in view mode. I assume this could be the reason.
I have tested similar flows that upload the file as in edit mode, scripts run.

Any idea how to fix this issue?

Regards,
Serbay

@Serbay  could you post a picture of the part of your flow where you added the checkout / check in actions please?

Hi @BrandonArceaux 
Here is an example for you;

I cannot seem to get this flow to work. Can I see properties you are using?

I have the same error dynamically setting the file name rather than picking it. Picking the file works. My error is:

 

We were unable to run the script. Please try again.

The script couldn't create a connection with Excel. Please try again.

 

I have tried checking out / in the document and tried using the identifier but no luck. Here's my Flow:
