error 401 excel during execution

Hello everyone. I am having a reiterative headache with excel actions. It happens that from time to time my flows are failing in some of the actions with error 401 .

I create a row in an excel table, after 5 seconds, I update that row with data coming from an API.... At first there were no problems, but now it is constant.
I need help on how to handle it or if I should really consider removing excel to store my data.

That is an authentication issue, can you open the excel file with the same account that is being used as the connection reference in the excel step in your flow ?



If I have helped you with an answer, please accept this post as a solution and thumbs up my reply. Thanks !
