SharePoint setting require check-out before edit, run the Flow with Excel(add a row/update a row) action can't recognize the table

Hi Everyone,

 

I'm stuck in the step about the Excel file in SharePoint requires check-out before it edit, and Flow action can't recognize this Excel's table, I use the Flow action with "add a row in a table" and "update a row", but both of them display error after using the check-out function, below snapshot for reference:

↓↓Flow can't capture the table from Excel on Add a row/updated action with setting require check-out before the edit, even input the table ID with compose(output) ↓↓

↓↓Flow can recognize Excel table info for the user to input expression(No/CD/CAT/Sub CAT.....), this is no setting with requires check-out before edit: ↓↓

I have run the SharePoint "check-out file" action before running the Excel "add a row/update" action, this action can let the file check-out in SharePoint, but still can't let the excel connector read the table info in the same flow process, please refer to below snapshot:

Please advise, thank you.

HI @ilu989 

 

You're trying to dynamically set the path to an Excel path in Flow. That is not possible at the moment. 

 

I created a template that you can use to overcome this limitation. You can find it here:

Under Actions > Excel

 

If I have answered your question, please mark your post as Solved.
If you like my response, please give it a Thumbs Up.

Cheers
