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:
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!
