Flow get list of rows form excel with ODATA filter

Hello EveryOne.

 

Please could you help me with ODATA and Excel online.

I connect to excel file with located on sharepoint site and I would like to get all rows form it.

 

How to get all rows by using List rows present in table component with ODATA filter?

 

I tried:

1. startswith(‘name of employee’, ‘Bob’)
answer: !sAj1K!’)’ or ‘,’ expected at position …
2. startswith(name of employee, ‘Bob’)
answer: !sAj1K!’)’ or ‘,’ expected at position …
3. startswith(“name of employee”, ‘Bob’)
answer: “!LKrqa!Syntax error: character ‘\”‘ is not valid at position …
4. startswith(name_x0020_of_x0020_employee”, ‘Bob’)
answer: “Invalid filter clause: cannot find the ‘name_x0020_of_x0020_employee’ column.
But this column is set in table.

 

But these are not help.

Hi @NikolayErlikh,

 

Please add a "Filter Array" action in the flow, you could refer to screenshot below to create the flow:

The flow would run successfully to filter out the rows as below:

Smiley Sad Does not work if you have more than 256 records. Has anyone found a way around it?

Make sure Pagination is turned on and your value is above the total count of rows in your table. 

Hi I tried doing the same. the flow ran without any hitch. However the table which I wanted to filter did not get updated event after the flow run. I checked the input and output after test run, it shows that the filtering has indeed happened, however not updated in the table in the excel file
