Format HTML table individual columns

Hi Power Automate community,


I have a flow that get items from a SharePoint list and send an email with those items to a specific user.


JB0007_2-1632769549756.png    JB0007_3-1632769581010.png


In the Format Compose, I am using the CSS of Ryan Maclean in order to format the tables as below:


The problem is that the tables are returned in different styles. For example, each table has a different column width and I want to prevent that. 


I don't know if there is a way that I can determine the columns width of the tables. For example, I want the Task Number shorter and the Task and Comments columns wider.


Can someone please help me? 

There are some columns that doesn't contain long sentences and I want to set a fixed width for those columns.

Hi @JB0007 


Are you able to set the width of the individual columns in the below section.





If not also please check the concept of n-th child.

Hi @VJR ,


Thank you for your feedback, I have tried the code but the table stayed the same:










Hi @JB0007 

I am having the same issue - have you solve your issue on column width?





Yes, I have used the Select action and passed the HTML / CSS code for each data in the Select columns.




That doesn't work. It only returns as text, not the intended formatting.

Thanks for this. @JB0007 
I have used the code that you have in the Select action, followed by these steps below. However, the HTML table has a gap between the two columns that are in my table. I think the issue is in the Clean HTML action. Would you be able to provide the code that you used in Clean HTML action and the Format HTML action? I think this is where my issue is.



Clean HTML code:
replace(replace(replace(replace(replace(body('Create_HTML_table'), '&lt;', '<'), '&gt;', '>'), '&amp;', '&'), '&#39;', '"'), '&quot;', '"')

Format HTML code:
table {
  border: 1px solid #1C6EA4;
  background-color: #EEEEEE;
  width: 60%;
  text-align: left;
  border-collapse: collapse;
table td, table th {
  border: 1px solid #AAAAAA;
  padding: 3px 2px;
table tbody td {
  font-size: 13px;
table thead {
  background: #24387F;
  border-bottom: 2px solid #444444;
table thead th {
  font-size: 15px;
  font-weight: bold;
  color: #FFFFFF;
  border-left: 2px solid #D0E4F5;
table thead th:first-child {
  border-left: none;


I think that you need to 'Clean' the HTML in the Create HTML table action.
