Update Links in Excel Automatically

Hello Everbody!

I'm Trying to Automate a billing process.


First of all, i have an Excel where people need to fill in a table if they have already finish their topic or not. There are 8 excel one for each company. Afraid of people deleting the excel and filling in the completed form, i created a new excel that use links to bring me each table results, in that way, the files just need to have the same name to the link works.

After this i have an flow that reads the tables in the consolidated excel and if the responsible have not filled his part it'll sent him an email.

My problem is that the links only update when i open the consolidated Excel, so before i run this flow i'm need to open the consolidated excel. What i need is that Excel to update before i sent the email, that way i can be sure that the flow is just sending email to people who haven't done their part.


I'll Let here how the process is working right now.

1° Here's where the company fill if they finish their part.



2° Here's where i consolidated all the tables using links (The problem is that this link need to be upload before i send the billing)

3° Here's the flow where i get the information if the company have finish their part or not using the "List rows presents in a table" and send a billing twice as week.
