Flow-Forms-Excel Row ID

Hi

I am currently using Flow to combine two inputs of data into one excel sheet. (One excel row to be specific)

Im using a 'Flow button' on a cellphone to log the users name and email, time and date. All in separate columns.

At a later stage the user will open MS Forms, and fill out some more details in which I want added to the same row in the above mentioned excel sheet.

My issue is, at one stage I had the _PowerAppsID_ column existing within my excel sheet, but Ive made many changes and now I seemed to have lost that column. It is non-existent. This leads me to 2 questions:

1. What is the cause of the _PowerAppsID_ columns appearance or disapearance? What triggers it into existence?

2. Once I get the _PowerAppsID_ column back into existence within my excel sheet, any ideas on how to use it to relate the 2 differnet sets of data, into each excel row?

I hope this makes sense. 

Any advice is welcomed. Thanks

Re: Flow-Forms-Excel Row ID

Hi @Lorcan,

 

1. Once you connect to your Excel table from PowerApps, PowerApps will create a column called _*PowerAppsId_*, with a unique ID for each row of your Excel table. As to how did this column disappear, I have no idea. Even if you disconnect the excel with PowerApps, or you have deleted the app, the column should still be there.

 

2. By "Flow button", did you mean the button to click in Flow app on the mobile? And did you mean that you want to get the MS Form response, and then fill the information from Flow and the response from MS Form to one Excel table in PowerApps? If so, I'm afraid that this cannot be achieved. The first issue is that you cannot transfer the information from Flow to PowerApps.

Mona
