Excel (Business) - List rows present in a table: 256 row limit, any way around it?

I know with some of the other Excel "get rows" or "get tables" actions, there is a "Maximum Get Count" property that can be increased to 2048. However, the "List rows present in a table (Preview)" action does not have that property. There is a "Top Count" property, which I've set to 2048 (see below), but the Flow I'm using is still only getting 256 rows from the file. In this file, there are typically going to be 1,000 or fewer rows, so this would be an ideal solution if I could get around the 256-row limit. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @  ChadVKealey,

 

 

The action "List rows present in a table" of Excel (Business) connector have the 256 rows limit in microsoft flow currently.

 

If you would like the limit of action "List rows present in a table" of Excel (Business) connector would be 2048 rows,

I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.

 

If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:

What happened to the "Get Rows" option? It worked really well, now I don't see it anymore. We only see "List rows present in a table"

 

Thanks

You can get more rows returned by setting a higher value for the pagination settings.

 

  1. Go to "List rows present in table" action
  2. Select the options elipses ("...")
  3. Select 'Settings'
  4. Enable Pagination
  5. Set an appropriate row limit
