Using "Do until" to Work Around Excel Business Connector's 256 Table Row Limit

I am using Flow to send personalized emails to a list of names and email addresses from Excel.  I am encountering the previously-reported limitation of the "Excel Online (Business)" "List rows present in a table" only listing the first 256 rows.  Is there a way to use the Control's "Do until" action to get past this limitation?

 

My Excel sheet is very basic with three columns:  name, email, and sent. 

 

Current Flow:

* List rows present in table

* Apply to each  (value from the previous step)

** Send an email  (personalize email body with the individual's name)

** Update a row  (update the "sent" column from "No" to "Yes")

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Re: Using "Do until" to Work Around Excel Business Connector's 256 Table Row Limit

Hi @StevenAtSAS ,

 

How many rows do you have in the Excel table?

 

Please try to turn on Pagination under Settings of action List rows present in a table.

 

Pagination enables you to handle more records than are returned in a single call from a service, the flow engine will continue to call the service until it has all of the items returned.

 

I have more than 300 rows in the table. In order to get all the rows, I turn on Pagination and set the limit to 100000. Then all the rows in the table are returned successfully.
