Could not click/select a "Trigger" or an "Action"



I 'm a complete newbie for ms flow, but I do really want to give it a try if it could really simplify my work.


So I tried creating a very simple flow by refreshing an excel file. Hence, I tried on searching for a connector for excel but the result didn't show any connectors or an action, but rather a list of triggers. Then I selected on one of the triggers (Get row - hoping this is is the refresh) but for some reason I couldn't click the trigger at all nor the other triggers.


Has anyone here encountered that? If so, what solution should be done to have it fixed.


Thanks in advance. 🙂

Re: Could not click/select a "Trigger" or an "Action"

Hi @rkamiya,


Could you please explain a bit for the meaning of "Refresh" ?

For Excel connection, currently there is no triggers available, further, there is no action that will simply "refresh" the Excel file.

We could take use of other data source to update the Excel file.

Please take a look at the available Excel template first:



Besides, take a look at the following guided learning for Microsoft Flow:
