Hey @Sharuk 


You can want to try something similar to mention in the thread - 


I have included it below for your convenience. 


Reading in batches will resolve your issue.


Create a variable varRowCount and set the value to 0.


In the List rows present in a table action, set Skip count to varRowCount. 


Use Do Until loop repeat the batches. In every iteration, increase the varRowCount value by 250.  You can read any number of rows with this approach.
