Uploading only unique rows from Excel to SharePoint list

Hi everyone,

 

I have a flow used to work properly, however I'm having challenges recently and i need your help.

 

This flow helps HR Team to upload new starters within the business from excel table to SharePoint as a list item.

Here expectation is for flow to look for only unique names and upload them to the SharePoint. (in order to avoid multiple list items).

 

This use to work but now everyday we can see same people created as a SharePoint list item. You can see the flow structure below, what is the problem?

 

Really appreciate your help.

Re: Uploading only unique rows from Excel to SharePoint list

@Egemeny 

How many elements do you currently store on your sharepoint list? Something similar happened to me some time ago, it seems action 'get ítems' by default gets the first 100 elements, and it took me sometime to realize I surpassed the limit. If this is your problema you can increase it by setting a higher Value in 'Top Count' input

Hope this helps

Hi @efialttes ,

 

Fantastic! Thank you very much!

I have more than 100 and it seems that was the problem.
