Flow does not run if excel is open?

Hi,


So I have this flow where I have to list an excel table and convert it to html table. A few minutes ago the flow did not run (I Had the file open). But now I have made another test and the flow also run with the excel file open.


Is there any "danger" to have the file open? Thank you!

@nailepmac I dont think there would be any danger, the flow would take the last saved data from the excel, if the excel was open and any data was updated but not saved then the new data which was yet to be saved will not be read by the flow.
