Cannot Read Excel On OneDrive for Business

I am trying to create a flow to get a row from an Excel file in OneDrive for Business. The connection let's me browse to the spreadsheet but I can't get it to recognize the table. I have a single tab in the sheet I'm expecting to see.

I have tried in multiple browsers as well as the Android app and get the same results on each.

I assume I have a connection if I can browse the folders to select the file.

Hi,

 

The problem could be that excel sheet does not contain a table.

Please open Excel file and highlight the data you want to access and select "Insert"->"Table" and save the file.

You should be able to see the newly created table from the Get Rows card for OneDrive for Business.

This is exactly what I needed! I was assuming a table was the same as a tab.

It defines the name "Table1" by default
