Cannot select table from my one drive excel file


My table doesn't appear for selection in my flow to add a row into a table?  The workbook is on One Drive and I'm in large company with Office 365 E 3 (not sure if that's relevant but would expect to have 'Excel Online (business) / One Drive for Business' as part of that package).  Also, after I've selected the workbook file 'Add Dynamic Content' is triggered.....It's not the same for a you-tuber I'm following for this also relevant?.....



Hello MorvenG ,

I just had a try and could use the action 'add a row into a table' normally. When did you found the issue? Is there any other action card missed? It would be helpful if you can share your action card result when you search Excel Online(business) and you specific application under your E3 license.

'after I've selected the workbook file 'Add Dynamic Content' is triggered' this means you a in one preview version and power automate will be update soon.

Thanks for getting back to me Johnnyg....I'm not sure if you can see the image below, but I'm only getting this far ---> 




Below is what happens after I add the file.....




Hello @MorvenG 

Please confirm that the Excel file does have a table defined!

Try choosing another Excel file that you know has a table defined and see if you can see that table in the action.

Kind regards, John

Hello @MorvenG 

In the screenshot where you get the error, did you open the page they mention in there?

It provides information for your IT department to investigate that may resolve this issue.

Kind regards, John
