Excel Connector - OneDrive (Business) switches to the wrong table on its own

I'm using the Excel business connector in Flow in order to create / update / delete rows in a table on OneDrive. I'm using PowerApps to collect the data and send it to Flow, which then performs the updates. Everything works, except periodically, seemingly on its own, I'll receive an error in response to submitting data to Flow - when I check it out, I find that I'm getting the errors because Flow is trying to update the wrong table (a different table in the same workbook).


I'm not doing anything to change the table connection, either in PowerApps or Flow - I can't think of a reason why the connector would switch to another table other than a bug.


Any advice or help?

Hi @awheeler ,


Could you please share a screenshot of your flow?

Could you please share more details about the error message?

Could you please explain more details about your scene so we could reproduce the issue?


Best regards,

Re: Excel Connector - OneDrive (Business) switches to the wrong table on its own

Hello, the same thing happens to me and what happens to me, for example, is that in one step (list rows of an Excel table), the name of the table changes itself. I save the flow with a table name and after a while after editing or executing the flow the name of the table is no longer the one I put, another table from the same book appears.
Thank you very much
