Update Excel doc on SharePoint online and send it as attachment

Hi there,

 

Here's what I'm trying to do:

1) Whenever an item is created on SharePoint, it triggers

2) Update an Excel doc stored on a SharePoint folder

3) Send that Excel doc as an attachment on a email to someone

 

Here's my problem:

1) I have no clue what to put for "Key Value" for Update a row for Excel

 

I tried putting in random words and characters or values from "When an Item is created" but it doesn't work.. I get a lot of errors.

 

Anyone can give me an example?

 

Thanks!

Hi @EdwardC,

 

When using the action Update a row, you are asked to select a column from the drop-down as Key Column, then specify a value from the Key column for updating.

I have made the following test. In the Excel table, I have several columns, name, date, number. In the action Update a row, select column “name” as the Key column. I am going to update the date with SharePoint item Crated date, in the Key value field, select dynamic content Title so that the row which has the same name will be updated.
