Excel File Picker not working in Chrome

Excel File Name Show Picker button not working in Chrome or Edge.

 

I added a Get Rows Action, but cannot select the file I want to use.

Clicking the "Show Picker" button does nothing at all.

Re: Excel File Picker not working in Chrome

Hi Michowl,

 

I test this issue on my side, and the “Show picker” button works fine in “Get rows” and “Insert rows” actions with Chrome, IE, and Edge.
Could you please try with it and let me know if it also works on your side now?

 

Best regards,
Mabel Mao

Re: Excel File Picker not working in Chrome

Additional detail: File Picker works fine when editing an old flow that already had the Excel Get Rows action (created in October 2016), just not new flows.

Re: Excel File Picker not working in Chrome

Hi Michowl,

 

Thanks for your feedback. According to your description, I try to create a flow with the action “Get rows” from Excel table. I found that when I create a new flow with this action, “Show Picker” button doesn’t work, but it works when I back to it after I saved and closed the flow.

 

I will report this issue from my side and back to you once I got any updates.

Re: Excel File Picker not working in Chrome

This is still not working for me....so I don't think it is quite resolved.

 

Also, when I try to use the dynamic content it is hit or miss. 3/4 of the time it doesn't work and selecting the attributes does nothing. If I keep playing with it, sometimes it will work all of a sudden for a bit.

 

Thanks for any assistance you can provide!

Re: Excel File Picker not working in Chrome

Hi Barry,

 

Could you provide the id of the flow having issues with the excel file picker? You can copy and paste the url of the flow designer page. It should look something like this: https://flow.microsoft.com/manage/environments/Default-72f988bf-86f1-41af-91ab-2d7cd011db47/flows/0d...

 

Best,

Re: Excel File Picker not working in Chrome

@barrykohagan, you're right. I did notice today, that the file picker wasn't appearing.

 

However, unlike before, if I change focus to a different window, then click back to the Flow editor window, the file picker appears.

Re: Excel File Picker not working in Chrome

Hi,

 

I actually had to give up because it wouldn't let me save it without the proper formatting; which I couldn't do without the file picker.

 

Instead I am publishing to a SharePoint list in this flow:

https://flow.microsoft.com/manage/environments/Default-9afb0412-a2e3-4cc4-8588-5460d339e250/flows/0a...

 

Are you able to see what you need in here? While you can't check on the issue with the Excel file picker (because I am no longer using Excel in this flow), maybe you can see that the dynamic content does not get pulled in properly, if at all, either.

 

Thanks for your help! I am very new to this, so please let me know if you need more information.

Re: Excel File Picker not working in Chrome

@barrykohagan, to save the flow in those cases, select the "Custom value" option for the input and just type in whatever. Then you can reopen and select the excel file

OK – here is a new one:.

https://flow.microsoft.com/manage/environments/Default-9afb0412-a2e3-4cc4-8588-5460d339e250/flows/5c...

 

File picker is still not working....even after I saved it with custom values and re-opened it.

 

Thanks for all of your help!

Re: Excel File Picker not working in Chrome

Hi Barry,

 

On the top right of the excel card,press the ellipsis symbol and choose the non-selected connection under the "My connections" section (I think you have two there but if you don't feel free to create another one). The currently selected connection doesn't appear to be pointing to a valid storage service for excel, which is causing the file picker not to work.

 

Best,

Mick
