Excel sheet recalculation

Hello,

I have a flow connected to an Excel table that sends an email whenever the 'ID' column equals 1.

Now, this value depends on a formula - if today's number > 19 then the value is 1, otherwise is 0.

This is a simple Excel fomula whose result depends on a volatile value (Today).

The flow works fine when the Excel sheet is open, but I think it doesn't get recalculated unless it is open, thus, it doesn't work...

This is how the flow looks like:

It's actually very easy to solve this problem: if you perform some operation on another table in the same worbook, it will force its recalculation...

Hi @WebPortal 

 

The current excel connector in Power Automate does not support refreshing or simply opening a worksheet/workbook as a direct action. However, you can check out the graph API (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/workbook-refreshsession?view=graph-rest-1.0&tabs=http ) and use the HTTP action or build a custom connector for this one and it I believe that would refresh the table calculation as well. 

 

Hope this Helps!
