Power App and Power Automate updating the same Excel file

I have a Power App that updates an Excel file with the Patch function, which works great.
But now I am working on a Power Automate that is receiving an HTTP POST request that is to update the same Excel file. That works too but without the "__PowerAppsId__" column, which means the Power App will not show those rows.
Is there some way to resolve this?

I ended up moving the data to Sharepoint lists and now there are no problems.

Hi @Mark_Stewart ,

You need another unique ID for the record - that field (as you have discovered) is "internal" to Power Apps. Yet another reason to add to this video from Shane Young regarding Excel as a data source.
