Desktop UI Flow - wrong input text

Hi,

 

I'm creating a UI flow that requires me to enter a formula into Excel. The formula I'm testing with is a 'lookup' formula.

I built the flow and tested it and it worked fine. After running it a few times I noticed an issue that seems to happen about half/third of the time.

 

Instead of entering the value '=lookup' it enters the value '=lokup' which obviously screws up my Excel.

Again, about half of the time this does work as expected.

 

Any advice?

 

Sam

Hi @SamPo,

 

The lose of "o" character may be caused by the key monitor didn't record the input of "o", you can check the value of the action to check the value of SendKeys whether have the "LOOKUP" instead of "LOKUP". If it is the wrong value, you can edit it in the value field directly:

@v-litu-msft 

Thanks for the update.

For now I am not setting the value hard-coded into the flow rather I am using an input to set the formula.

The formula I put in the input is definitely correct as it does work some of the time. I run the same flow over and over, half the time it works and half the time it doesn't.

Definitely seems like a bug.
