PowerApps 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: PowerApps ID

Here is the explanation for the _PowerAppsID_:

"

Once you connect to your Excel table from PowerApps, PowerApps will create a new column called _*PowerAppsId_*, with a unique ID for each row of your Excel table.

"

Reference 

 

The _*PowerAppsId_ is used to mark the Row number within the Excel table.

 

You could take use of the lookup() function to find the related value within the same row.

Re: PowerApps ID

I have a follow-up question to this. If I deleted the auto-generated _Powerappid_ how do I get it back? I removed that column from one of the sheets in my excel file and added more data but that data doesn't appear when I call it within the app. My assumption is because it doesn't have _Powerappid_ associated with it.
