Launch() with a variable not invoking link?

I have followed guidance implicitly, to produce an OnSelect property of a Button on a Form as follows:

Set(varListLink,ExportToExcel.Run(JSON(SQLDataTableDataLink,JSONFormat.IncludeBinaryData)).filelink);Launch(varListLink)

This OnSelect script invokes a Flow and it works - my Flow creates a .CSV file in the desired SharePoint location. However the App does not display the File as download/link in the browser footer - which is the expected behaviour from the Launch element. The Form is set in Edit Mode and I cannot determine why the "Launch" element of this script does not invoke the Action is is supposed to perform.

Any help - as always - would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Hi Randy,

 

In actual fact, I was following instructions for a URL link for OneDrive, when my intention was to link to a file in SharePoint. I resolved the issue following different instructions.

 

Thanks!

@AdamGill 

Is the varListLink value a valid URL?  I would check that your flow is actually returning a well formatted and valid URL or the Launch function will not know how to handle it.

 

I hope this is helpful for you.

Hi @AdamGill ,

 

Have you solved this issue? If not yet, could you please share details of the flow with some screenshots? Please check if you have append proper URL in the flow's respond to Power Apps action.
