vlookup in Excel

I would like to complete a vlookup on a table stored in my excel file.  Excel Get Row wants a unique ID which it creates but this does not map to my data (see example below).  This took 3 minutes with Zapier - trying to test if we should move to Flow...

 

Input Variable from Webhook = PM_UserID

 

Table to Search = User ID Mapping

 

Column 1 = PM_UserID

Column 2 = Full_User_Name

 

Desired Output Variable = Full_User_Name

Hi CJ_Gustafson,

 

Currently, the "Row ID" represents an ID which is different from the "Row Number”. Once you create a connection to an Excel table, you will notice your table will now have a "__PowerAppsId__" column - that is where you find the ID for that row, that you can later specify in a Flow.

 

So when using the action “Excel-Get row”, to get the Row Id, you could consider adding an action “Excel – Get rows” before it, then you would be able to get the dynamic content “Row Id”.


After the Get row action, you could add other actions such as “send email” to send you an email with the Full_User_Name.
