Update Row in Excel with a copied file

Is it possible to update a Row in Excel with a file that has been copied in to place. 


We have a template of files and i want to update a Key file that will act as a reference to all the other files to populate Client Name Project Number etc.


I know the Keyfile will always be called the same name and i know the table name will always be Table1. But in flow when i input the details i get the below:


I'm not sure what Provide Item Properties is, but this doesn't move into give me the other details to populate and update the row. 


Is there any way to do this?

@mousman85 Are you using Excel Online(Business) connector? I have tried from my side to add 'Update a row' action but doens;t have 'Provide the item properties' in it. Could you please delete the action and re-add it again?

I've tried re-adding but the same issue, i think this is because the file doesn't exist yet, it will be added once the file has been copied to the new location, and i have to use variable to set the new location as i won't know what it is until its moved, so i'm not sure this is possible, my other option was to apply the changes to the row BEFORE it got copied, but i'm worried that this will mean the if two flows run at the same time, it might not have time to update one version of the flow before moving. 


its a shame you can't auto populate a new file with the same options if you know what each row and column will be called as it won't change.

I'm having the identical issue. Introducing a variable brings up the "provide the item properties" prompt and it isn't clear what's required in that field.
