From Yammer to excel - add row




I just created a workflow which is not working.


Every time a Yammer post is created in the Library and Information Services group, I want it to be migrated into an excel spreadsheet in One Drive.


I started by creating an excel spreadsheet on my One Drive, and editing it on Microsoft Excel (as opposed to editing it in the browser). 


I clicked on ‘Format as table’ and chose a template. 


I went to ‘Design’ tab and created a name for the table.


I saved the spreadsheet, closed it, and went back to editing it on One Drive.


On Microsoft Flow I clicked on ‘Create from Blank’, ‘Search hundreds of connectors’, searched for ‘Yammer – when there is a new message in a group’.


I selected  ‘Yammer Group’, and Network ID.


I clicked on ‘Next step’, ‘Add action’, search for ‘Excel – Insert row’. 

File name - I browsed to the spreadsheet I created.

Table name – I select table name I created


I selected the content I want to migrate to each column in spreadsheet. Click on ‘Save flow’, ‘Done’.


Why is it not working?


I would be very grateful for your help!


PS - I mean to post this message in the Microsoft Flow forum, and now I am not able to delete it. My apologies!

Hi @CSF,


I have moved your thread into the Flow forum.

For your issue, please make sure you have the Excel table saved successfully, and close the Editing Mode in Excel online, after that, take a try to run the flow and check the running status.

Thank you so much for helping. 


I did what you said, and the message apprears: 'The input array was empty flow'. (Please see image below). 


Did I miss a step when creating the flow?


Kind regards,
