Update rows in excel with Forms data

Hello everyone.

 

I am having some trouble trying to use forms data to update excel rows.

 

Basically, I want to my flow respond like this:

If user selects option A, it creates a new row in a excel file, with forms data (no problem with that).

If user selects option B, the user informs a code/ID (which I generate for each row) to overwrite a row in the excel file.

 

The problem is that I cannot 'get' at the same time both forms answers and excel rows, to see which one match and then overwrite.

I can only choose to use dynamic content of one of them (or I am doing something wrong).

 

I could easily solve this problem with a macro (to detect and overwrite), but I cannot use flow with macro-enabled excel worksheets.

 

How could I make that happen?

 

Thanks in advance for any help

Hi @eltonj,

 

I'm afraid that this cannot be achieved so far in Flow as you cannot get with row to be overwrite in the excel file. If you feel that this is really important to you, you could post an idea in below forum:

i tried to make a flow to add a row to an excel table, but the only dynamic content I have access to is Responder ID.

I made a Flow to email reponses with no issues and all answers on the form were available to add the the email.

How did you get Flow to add a row to a spreadsheet?2017-12-12_11-05-58.png
