I am currently using Flow to combine two inputs of data into one excel sheet. (One excel row to be specific)

Im using a 'Flow button' on a cellphone to log the users name and email, time and date. All in separate columns.

At a later stage the user will open MS Forms, and fill out some more details in which I want added to the same row in the above mentioned excel sheet.

My issue is, at one stage I had the _PowerAppsID_ column existing within my excel sheet, but Ive made many changes and now I seemed to have lost that column. It is non-existent. This leads me to 2 questions:

1. What is the cause of the _PowerAppsID_ columns appearance or disapearance? What triggers it into existence?

2. Once I get the _PowerAppsID_ column back into existence within my excel sheet, any ideas on how to use it to relate the 2 differnet sets of data, into each excel row?

I hope this makes sense.

Any advice is welcomed. Thanks

Re: Flow-Forms-Excel

Hi @  Lorcan,


Could you please share a screenshot of the configuration of your flow?

What changes you have made on the excel sheet so you seemed to have lost that _PowerAppsID_ column?


For your first question:

The disapearance of the _PowerAppsID_ columns maybe caused by your opration on the excel sheet, what changes you have made on the excel sheet so the _PowerAppsID_ columns disapear?


The appearance or existence of the  _PowerAppsID_ columns is caused by any operation on the excel sheet such as insert a row or delete a row using Microsoft flow.


For your second question:

How to unserstand use the  _PowerAppsID_ to relate the 2 differnet sets of data, into each excel row?


Please explain more details about your requirement and your scenes so we could provide a proper workaround for you.
