Can't paste from clipboard

I am building a Flow and need to add/delete several rows from an Excel table. I was hoping to duplicate the "Add a row into a table (Excel Business)" action so I wouldn't need to enter all the excel sheet information repeatedly, but I am getting an error when I try to do so.

I can copy the action to my clipboard, and that works fine. ("Successfully copied to your clipboard.")

When I click "Add an action" and select "My clipboard", the action appears there. But clicking on it does nothing, and shows an error banner: "Cannot convert undefined or null to object".

Anyone else run into something like this?

Re: Can't paste from clipboard

Hi @mtsilbiger ,

 

It seems that you have issue when working with feature copy and paste flow actions.

 

Which browser are you using?

 

Could you try with a different browser to see if it will work?

 

I have made a test, however, the issue could not be reproduced. The action could be copied and pasted successfully. By the way, I am using Chrome.

Re: Can't paste from clipboard

Hi Mabel,

I am using Chrome as well.

I did some more experimenting... I am able to paste actions in very simple flows, but it appears to begin failing when I try to paste in a nested condition.

Attempting to paste in a nested condition.
Hopefully this is more specific... let me know if you can reproduce it under these conditions.

Thanks,
Max

Hi @mtsilbiger ,

 

I have tested again with a flow which has nested conditions, however, the issue you mentioned doesn’t happen either.

Hi Mabel,

 

That's unfortunate... does Flow generate any client logs or anything I could provide to give more information?

I'm having the same issue. Tried in IE, Firefox, and Chrome. This function worked fine yesterday but today not so much.
