In 'Create recurring flows' example the 'Excel service' Excel - Get rows action does NOT exist or does not appear in the list of actions

Hi Everyone. 


I'm very new to this, so I'm working through the flow training.

  • I've got onto the 'Create recurring flows' task.
  • I added the 'schedule form blank' picking interval of 1 and freq of day
  • Next it asks me to choose the New Step and pick 'Excel' service' and Excel - Get rows action.

This action DOESN'T EXIST in the list !

I can see get row... but NOT get rows. This is very confusing. The training shouldn't suggest examples which ain't there really. 

Can anyone please let me know what other options I could choose to make this work?Excel - Get rows doesn't existExcel - Get rows doesn't exist


The other thing is, the 'reporting an issue' option at the bottom of the page ALSO doesn't work. When I tried to report this all I got was 'Something went wrong. Please try again !'  Tried multiple different variations of reporting the issue and NONE worked 


That needs to be fixed !

Hi @Anonymous,


Thank you for your feedback!

Now, there is no Get rows action in the Excel connector, instead, you can use the List Rows present in an table action to get rows of the table.

When you submit the issue if the page report something wrong, you can refresh this page and try it again, or submit feedback and this page: 2019-11-01 141840.png
