Update excel row after 7 days

Hi,

 

I've been reading all type of posts asking for help in the last 3 weeks. And i cannot go through this without asking for help, just because i allways have diferent results for something so simple.

 

So, my problem is:

 

I've an excel sheet with a table, feeded with responses from a form. And i want to delete some cells from one row after 7 days.

 

Person A make an appointment today for 5/08/2019. 7 days later from the appointment date, the flow will check if tath date is 7 days older and will update the row, leaving just the appointment date and one other cell.

 

I've this flow:

 

flow

(Note: Fields with the red line have a space to clear the cell, fields with the circle keep the information.)

 

But theres something that isn't working because some lines that meet the condition doesn't get cleared and others do. Please, this is getting me nuts, can you help me?

Re: Update excel row after 7 days

 

Hi @TiagoMendesTVL ,

 

Currently, Update a row action requires a key column to update the specified row.

It is recommended to use a field with a unique value and not empty as the key column. This will update the specified column without duplicates.

Also if you want to clear some fields, please refer to the configuration below.

Re: Update excel row after 7 days

Hi,

 

I would set the field to dynamic expression empty() or null()

(don’t recall how the function is called at the moment) 

 

Or assign a previously initialized string variable that has no value..

 

hope this helps
