Delete __PowerAppsId__

Hello there,


I have used a REST API (POST) in my flow to make minor modification of my excel file. After sending in the inputs (input_file_name,input_folder_name,output_folder_name). The output_excel file is created and adds a _PowerAppdsId_ column. How do I tell power apps or power automate (ms flow) to not to add _PowerAppdsId_ column.  Is there a way to delete this column.

Hi @vkgarapa 


I don't think it's possible. Power Apps needs that field as an ID. I've checked some threads, and the answer is always the same:


On the Power Automate side you can easily define the column by using the "Key Column" field for it:

I think you can dig a little bit further on the Power Apps forum, and probably someone has a neat workaround that can help you.


Otherwise, the final try is to submit an idea and hope that the team implements it.
