possible to add a value to new key column in same flow?

My flow is populating an excel table by first adding rows and then updating, In some cases the trigger of the flow requires a new column to be added to the excel table. That I can do, but I then also like to populate this new key column in the same flow, for the row which is being updated.


is that possible

Hi @SimonH,


Which trigger are you using?

Do you want to create then update the row with the new column added?

I am not sure with your scenario, please share more details for better understanding.


Best regards,

It's basically a webhooks which collects a nested JSONs for items. I'm recording the items in a table which will act as a report

I want to first add a row to the table with fixed data. But the provided JSON may require me to add an additional column to the row, which I then would like to add a value to in the current row.

So in my flow I would create avalue to act as a key column, check if that key value exists. If not, add the key column to the table and then add the value into this column in the current row.
