Update row in protected sheet - Excel

I'm trying to update a table (row) in a protected Excel Sheet however unable to see/navigate or even manually type the spreadsheet name in the "File" required field in the Excel Online (Business) - Update a row Action. 

 

I successfully complete above on a non-protected spreadsheets but not a protected one.  Any ideas?

The whole point of a protected sheet in Excel is to keep users from changing it.  So why would you think that MS would let you change it using Flow if you can't change it using Excel?

Discovered the issue is editing a row on a Macro enabled spreadsheet (xlsm).  Anyone have knowledge of editing an Excel with Macros?

We are updating a hidden row, hidden from basic users so they can't change anything used in calculations, used for reference in another sheet.

I understand why you want to do it.  I just don't find it a suprise that Flow can't see the row if its hidden and protected by a password.  Flow is connecting to the worksheet using OAuth credentials so its really not in a position to respond to a unique password challenge from a protected sheet.
