Update Single Cell in Excel File



I've created a table with one column (Column1) and a single cell below it.

I'd like Flow to go and update that cell (A2) with todays date when triggered.

Is this possible?


I've tried creating a Flow with 'Update a row' Excel option but it's asking for 'Key Value' where I intered 'Timestamp' from Dynamic content'. which is where it's failing?!


Please help. Thank you

Hi @Alimsab,


You could use Get rows to get all the rows first.

Then use Update row action to update the corresponding row.


Please take a try.

It doesn't have an option to link to SharePoint?

Options are; Box, Dropbox, OneDrive - no SP?

Tried entering file link in SP but doesn't like it?

Hi @Alimsab


Try Excel for business. That one contains an excel file on SharePoint.
