Pivot Table doesn't show up for "List Rows Present in a Table"

Context: I'm setting up a flow to send an automatic email in case the value of a cell in a Pivot Table is > than another value in a specific cell.

 

The subject is pretty self-explanatory, but my steps were: "Recurrence" -> "List Rows Present in a Table". I select my file in OneDrive, and when I try to find the pivot table it only lists non-pivot tables. I've set my pivot table as a table (that's redundant), and I've changed the name, but it still doesnt show up. I've set up this kind of flow before, but never with pivot tables. Is it even possible, am I doing something wrong?

 

In the future I'll have to do this with a pivot table originated from Power Pivot, will it be different?

 

In case it's not possible to connect Pivot Tables, do you have any suggestions to do this?

 

Thanks!

Hey Mate,

 

The Excel Connector can't work with Pivot table. The workable Excel table under Excel Connector is the Data Table. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/overview-of-excel-tables-7ab0bb7d-3a9e-4b56-a3c9-6c94334e...

 

You may need to first 'Copy' the Value from the Pivot table into an actual data table(which I assume you have done), then use the data table as the data source under Power Automate.

List Rows in a Table only works on regular tables not Pivot Tables.  By definition a pivot table contains calculations which aren't allowed in a Table if you want to use it with Power Automate.  So this action won't work on a pivot table.
