Hi @tugba ,

 

You might need to separate the data to 2 files so far. 

 

I found there is one idea submitted by others where you could vote on so taht it might be considered for future release:

@v-monli-msft ,

 

What happens when you can't  separate the data into 2 files becuase your using the table as a contact list  and the app is your way of updating it.. 

 

My issue is the excel file is 184kb then when one of my users makes a change to the contact in the power app and writes the change back it bumps the file size up to 2.77 mb and gives me this silly error... whats going on here?

 

Thanks,

Jordan
