Passing Data Between Flows

Scenario: I have a data entry form that has two sections (Part A & B) that is completed by different people (Person 1 & 2). 

I have created two MS Forms (Form 1 is Part A & Form 2 is Part B) and use Power Automate (Flow 1) to trigger an email to send Form 1 to Person 1.  The completion of Form 1 then triggers Flow 2 to send Form 2 to Person 2 for completion. 

Flow 1 includes an action to access a known Excel table to create & populate a row from the data collected in Form 1.  I then want to update this row from the data colected in Form 2.

Issue:  I have no "key" to identify what row to update in Excel from Flow 2.  Is there a way to pass data between these flows, or is there another way to do this?

Thank you.

@ChrisF1 It is possible to call a child flow from parent flow, please check this out:

Hope this helps.
