Flow suddenly cannot access Excel table

Hi

 

I have a flow set up which takes Form responses and puts them in an Excel table.  This has been running for some time with no problem.  I have not made any changes recently to the flow set up or table properties.  The flow has stopped and has the following error:

 

Status
Failed
Error
Action 'Add_a_row_into_a_table_-_WORKING_COPY' failed

 

 

I have checked and the table name has not been changed.

 

I tried editing the flow, reselecting the location of the table and choosing the table which appears fine in the drop down list.  However it then won't allow me to save the flow and brings the following error:

The dynamic operation request to API 'excelonlinebusiness' operation 'GetTable' failed with status code 'NotFound'. This may indicate invalid input parameters. Error response: { "status": 404, "message": "The requested resource doesn't exist. clientRequestId: 2dea612f-0ffd-41d7-9468-bb748ee9678a serviceRequestId: 0479b8ff-c65c-47f8-b6e8-4bc6013c5885", "error": { "message": "The requested resource doesn't exist." }, "source": "excelonline-we.azconn-we.p.azurewebsites.net" }

Hi @keegkeeg 

 

Sometimes there are issues with the connection. Power Automate breaks the connection silently a,nd then there are strange errors like this.

 

Can you please go to your connections in Data > Connections, check the connection that you're using, and if there are any issues with it. If possible, re-create it and use the new connection in your Power Automate and see if it works.

 

This happens all the time, and re-setting the connection usually sets everything correctly again.

 

If I have answered your question, please mark your post as Solved.
If you like my response, please give it a Thumbs Up.

Hi Manuel

 

Thank you for your response.  I have checked the connections and all say they are connected.  I have other similar flows running between Excel and Forms which are working fine so am I right in thinking the connections are okay?

 

Hey KeegKeeg,

 

Sometimes all it takes is not just resetting the connection but going back into the flow and, unfortunately, re-entering the dynamic values as well.

 

I've had similar issues and that always fixes it...as annoying as it can be sometimes.

 

Have you given that a shot?

 

Also, if there's a way to post a screenshot of your Flow, that would be helpful.

 

Thanks!

Hi @keegkeeg 

 

@DCReina is correct. Sometimes all get's messed-up, and the only way is to reset stuff.

 

Were you able to solve the issue?

 

Another solution is for you to export and import Power Automate. When you import it again, you can pick the connections, and all should be reset. 

 

Here's how to do it:

Hi

 

SO i have tried resetting the connections and re inputting all the fields but Flow won't allow me to save this (see error as above).  

 

I also tried exporting the Flow but when I import it it shows a similar message:

So here is what I did. 

 

1. Make sure add the chosen account in a SP group which has edit level access.

2. Vaildate the account can access the file with edit level permissions.

3. 'Save As' copy the flow.

@keegkeeg have you found the solution to this? I'm having exactly the same issue.

I've tried the solutions suggested here but none of them solved the problem.

 

Thanks

I am also having this problem, and the solutions suggested aren't fixing it.

Is there still no solution to this problem?

I recreated my connection and now all my other flows that are dependent on this connection is failing and I still don't know how to fix it

Sharon

I wonder whether the connection is more likely to fail if 1. The flow is shared, meaning that there are multiple users that could be triggering the bug, or 2. dual authentication is causing the connection to break. My university requires reauthentification whenever I log into Office 365 from another location, and also just at random times. Could that be the problem?
