add a row to a table using parameters

Hi all,

 

I am using the add a row to a table in excel on-line utilizing a parameter to dynamically select the file that I want to update however I am getting this error: The parameter 'file' has an invalid value, when I compare the manually selected file path and what I am providing, they are the exact same. Is it not possible to use a parameter?

Re: add a row to a table using parameters

Hey @petehoran 

 

This is a known issue with the excel connector. You have to select the file through the browse folder action and actually naigate through the folders and select the file. Once the file is selected, you have to select the table from the drop down only. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Re: add a row to a table using parameters

Hi @petehoran ,

 

We could only select an Excel file through File Browse in the "Add a row into a table" action in Microsoft flow currently, the dynamic content of File path is not supported in the File field in the "Add a row into a table" action currently.

 

Best regards,

Alice

Re: add a row to a table using parameters

This is not solved. They just pointed out that the functionality does not exist. Microsoft please re-consider your status and points crediting. This is a terrible user experience.
