What is the behavior when an item/file already exists?



I am trying to work with a Flow that tries to create and entry in a SharePoint list from an Excel file. If the Flow tries to create an item that is already in the SharePoint list, can I use "run after" to fork the flow on an error when creating that item?

Re: What is the behavior when an item/file already exists?

Hi stvcdms


Please take this thread for a reference:


Please try to get items in the list first, then use a condition to check if the new item is existing in the list.


Please take a try with it. Please feel free reply if you need more help.


Best regards,
