Creating Planner tasks from Excel online table

Hello. 

I'm fairly new to flows.  I'm creating planner tasks from an excel online table.  The flow has a condition, which based on the content of the table should be true, but the output of the flow is showing up as false.  I'm not sure why.flow condition2flow condition2flow condition1flow condition1Flow result2Flow result2Flow result1Flow result1

Re: Creating Planner tasks from Excel online table

Hey @augustine2 

 

Can you confirm that the EXCEL table has the Name column with data that contains 'CCW_'? also, what is the datatype of the Active column? 

 

Can you check if there are no white spaces after the CCW_ and Yes strings in the conditions?

 

You might also want to try using the Starts With in place of the contains function in the condition. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Both columns in excel online (Name and Active) are text format.  I also confirm that there are no white spaces.

Re: Creating Planner tasks from Excel online table

Hi @augustine2,

 

And is there no one task created in the 282 branches? You can check the 282 rows or task buckets whether have task created.

Could you please share an instance of the row which contains "CCW_" and "Active" is equal to "Yes"? ( Please shield the personal information, email address, name, etc. )
