updating a row in excel


I am having issues updating a row in an excel table based on a conditional.  My intent is to go through a table of values and check to see if any item is not "processed" and if it is not, I will send an email and then mark that row as processed by placing an "x" in the column.  I can iterate through the table and send emails just fine but the flow errors out each time I try to update the row.  I have included a picture of the table as well as the flow.  Thanks for the help!

What's the error?

Hi Damien,

The error I am getting is that the row is not found.  This is strange to me because if I look at the inputs section of this function it shows that it is on the right row but then in the output it states it does not find it.  I have included a picture.  





Hi @ryanBourbon 


You are passing a whole object to the key value when I guess it should be a string?  Look at the key value in your screenshot.  It's in curly brackets.  In order for the action to know which row to update, you need to supply it with a column name and the key to filter on like a unique ID.  Looking at your sheet, maybe that would be your employee ID or date of entry and not the Processed Column as this is the column you want to update, not search by.

P.S. take a look at my new blog here and like & subscribe to my YouTube Channel thanks 😉

I assumed the flow would know the row because it is within the loop based on a condition.  I have added a function to email within the same section and the email goes through properly.  I have changed the key column and key value to the point that it will not fail but it also does not function.  I am wondering if it is the general method I have used to set this flow up and if there is a better way.
