Cant manualy run flow in Excel

Hi,

I am just getting started using Power Automate and need some help.

 

A few months ago i created a table in excel from which we was sending out automatic e-mails using the action send an email (V2). The flow was running perfectly. Now the flow as stopped working and I have tried to create a totally new file and flow, but the run "button" in excel cant be clicked. I also cant test the flow..

 

I have made new ones but they wont run either....

 

Please help.

 

(all my other flows are working)

are you selecting column inside table range? if you are not selecting column inside table range then your flow run button will be disabled. This is default functionality. And if you are selection whole excel row it will also be disabled. Reason- In excel flow only works within table.

 

Thanks

Yes...

Whatever cell, range, column or table a select it is still disabled. 

When I close the excel file and reopen it says that I dont have any flows for this file. Could this have something to do with it?

 

Thanks

Can you check weather your flow is available in My Flows in power automate platform?
