Excel Online (Business) -> Get a Row: Power Automate can't open File

Hi there,


I try to open a excel file in my teams group. I've uploaded the file on my own, so I have read/write rights to the file.


In PowerAutomate -> Excel Online (Business) -> Get a Row:

  • in "Location" I can select my teams group
  • in "Document Library" I can select my Documents
  • in "File" I can select a Excel file from the channels


Power Automate didn't find any tables in the file (but there are a lot of named tables in the file)

It seems that Power Automate can't open the file


If I fill in the table name as an custom value, I've got an error 404 in the key column

Any ideas?

Hi @Frank37

Make sure that the sheets are formatted as a table, power apps could read your file as per attached screen shots.
