Re: 256 rows limit getting rows from excel

Hello,

 

I'm facing the same issue on the Flow "List rows present in a table".

No matter if I put an value in the "Top Count" or let it empty, the first 256 rows are returned in the body('actionName')?['value'] parameter but the rest is put in an URI with the parameter body('actionName')?['@odata.nextLink'].

 

Example :

{
  "@odata.context": "https://excelonline-we....",
  "value": [
    {
      "@odata.etag": "",
      "ItemInternalId": "34cd99d3-d925-4212-89c8-d21c11ce4075",
      "Item" : 1
    },
    {
      "@odata.etag": "",
      "ItemInternalId": "6ddf51df-8d2b-4137-ab8f-b562af267b15",
      "Item" : 2
    },
    ...
    {
      "@odata.etag": "",
      "ItemInternalId": "71f1b8c5-de34-447a-b259-024738052573",
      "Item" : 256
    }
  ],
  "@odata.nextLink": "https://flow-.../tables/1/items?source=me&%24top=144&%24skip=256"
}

 

I can't loop on the content of the parameter "@odata.nextLink", is there a configuration to retreive all data in the body('actionName')?['value'] ?? 

 

Thanks for your answer

Re: 256 rows limit getting rows from excel

Hello Charles, 

 

Current query is for different connector 'ExcelOnline', whereas this thread was for a question in regular 'Excel' connector. 

 

ExcelOnline connector supports pagination, hence it is returning limited results along with next link. Which is expected. 

To consume all records from a paginated operation, you need to enable pagination in the action that you are configuring. Pagination setting is located under action settings, screenshot attached. 

 

Best Regards,

Re: 256 rows limit getting rows from excel

Hello,

 

Thanks for your explanation that's exactly what I wanted.

Do you think it would be possible to add this information in the docs for the Excel connector?

Thank you

Re: 256 rows limit getting rows from excel

I tried it - it worked.

I have a excel table with 700+ rows.

I use flow to update a sharepoint list. I used to do one flow for every 256 rows.

After the pagination thing - it worked in one flow.

 

Checking a time comparison.

 

Thanks for the "Pagination"

Re: 256 rows limit getting rows from excel

Thanks everyone, I just had this happen today and the pangination appears to be working fine.  Is 2048 still the max limit?  I'm expecting to hit closer to 3000 lines.
