Excel Online (Business) > Update a Row > Document Library drop-down is not fully populating

I'm having an issue when using the Excel Online (Business) Update Row action. Though I don't think it's related, the issue arises when I'm using Sharepoint as the location. I select my appropriate location, but when I go to choose from the Document Library drop-down, it seems the list of libraries is not fully populating. I have a loooong list of libraries and it gets to the letter C in the alphabet but does not populate any further. I'm also unable to enter a custom value to allow it to search for a library past letter C, but the search function works fine for names beginning with A through C. I’ve tried in multiple browsers and got the same issue. I've added a screenshot with most of the name obfuscated.


Is there a workaround for this? Such as entering a unique library ID (if option exists) instead of the name? Or some other clever workaround?flow.PNG

Hi @michael92 ,


We couldn't choose the document library from the drop down list in microsoft flow, and enter custom value in the Document Library field is not supported in microsoft flow currently.

Are you saying that you were able to replicate the issue? Is there a workaround for something like this?
