Flow for Excel not loading, can't open file anymore



I was testing out Power Automate (Flow) for Excel for Business. 


I created one test document on Excel for Desktop, and saved in a Sharepoint Document Library which I am the owner.

I created a simple flow as well. 


The run button was grayed out after the flow was saved.


I tried closing and reopening the excel spreadsheet, but after i closed, I could not open the document anymore. 


I got this error: 



"Unexpected error trying to copy the file" seems to be OneDrive trying to download the document from the cloud and failing. 


When trying to open the file on Excel online, it opens, but the Flow add-in panel does not load:




I have tried removing and re-adding the Excel add-in, but the error persists. 


Here is the flow: 




Here is the table in the excel document:

Hi @TiagoFreire ,


Please take a try to make a test on a new excel table and leave the "Key" column blank to see if the issue still exists:

The file and/or flow are broken. 


After the whole weekend, the file opened, but Flow still does not load on the document.
