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

Hello,

 

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:
https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/How-to-check-if-an-item-exists-on-a-SharePoint-li...

 

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,
