I have an excel report exported from a system to a sharepoint location/One drive for business on daily basis.

The system exports the report as excel columns (with headers) and records per row. As it's an export from a system it is not saved as a Table in excel therefore I use "create table" excel action when an file is created in onedrive for business/sharepoint.

As i want this flow to run on daily basis , i have passed the "file identifier" for the file field in "create table" excel action.

It was working fine last week and tested too. But now when im testing it throws an error 

"The expression "drives('b!Q7HFSqXKC0m678_LqNQAIBR4-b2-v1ZMn8Twqoo_qgkfUYOOhvIGQ57wS_uWxNsf')/items/b!Q7HFSqXKC0m678_LqNQAIBR4-b2-v1ZMn8Twqoo_qgkfUYOOhvIGQ57wS_uWxNsf.01ZILNJLJ4VJATNI7YRFC2PFVPHNYPF2ML" is not valid.
clientRequestId: a6a09628-0a08-4ac9-a37d-47bccec8e67f"


Please let me know if there is any update recently in flows on excel actions, or any help on this is highly appreciated.


Thanks in advance

Hi @kms1 ,


This error may occur if configure File field instead of using the options in Show picker instead of manually enter the file path or Dynamic content.

We have already reported this issue to PG, and if there are any updates, I will post back.

Also, if the file you want to use is optional in Show picker, it is recommended to use the option to configure File field.

Thanks for the reply.

But i want that file field to be dynamic. This flow has to run on daily basis, picking the new file which arrives in onedrive and reading the excel data and inserting it into list.

So manually selecting the file name from pick option works for one time, but nextday the file with the same name wouldnt be recognized( as it throws "resource could not be found").


Please let me know if there is any workaround for this.


Thanks in Advance.
