email from excell not piking up text in certain cells

I am using the trigger "for a selected row" for excell, and sending an email via outlook.  When the email comes through it is not including some of the text from the column headers that were chosen.. Any ideas as to why

@ChristianAbata  yes see below for a screen shot of my excel file and flowflow 1.PNGflow 2.PNG


also this is how the email is coming in

I figured out what the issue was, it seems as though flow doesn't recognize columns that have spaces, or icons ie: @,!_-:  once I got rid of these and cleaned up the column titles the text was brought into the output of the html to text action.

One thing I am having an issue with right now is formatting how the email comes through I format it in the html-text action but it does not output that when the email arrives in my inbox. is there an action that allows one to format the overall look of the email for when it lands in someones inbox?
