add rows to excel table missing rows after Get File Content

I am trying to add 18 records to excel table and then get file content and create new excel file in sharepoint.

but what is strange when i create file i miss some records: i get 10 instead of 18. I already added delay for 1 minute but it is still not enough. as i notice that as more records i add to table as more delay i need to make.


how to solve this issue? i cannot just delay for 5 or 10 mintes.

Re: add rows to excel table missing rows after Get File Content

Hi @opit,


Unfortunately, there is no way could release the status of Excel file locked just could to wait in Flow.

Could you give the reason that why can not wait too long?

Re: add rows to excel table missing rows after Get File Content

Hi  @v-litu-msft 


first of all: how much time do i need to add to delay (wait)? because as i noticed it depends on a table rows amount which i need to enter to excel table? if i add 2 minutes delay, then I still cannot be sure that it is enough and maybe there will be some times where i miss some rows then.


second: i would like to inform user about successufull generation of file and make file available for to edit and print.
