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 @Anonymous 
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:

For anyone else who searches this, my issue was due to no file extension, .xlsx, being added on the 'Create File' step

Thank you for posting this. The missing .xlsx extension resolved my error.
