OneDrive (Business) - When a file is modified (properties only) Trigger Firing Multiple Times

Hi All,


I've seen a couple of other users post about a similar (maybe the same?) issue.  I have a very simple flow that uses the 'OneDrive (Business) - When a file is modified (properties only)' trigger.  After the trigger is the Excel action - 'List rows present in a table'.  The issue I'm experiencing is when I make a change to the Excel file I'm testing with, the Flow will run multiple times (sometimes several minutes apart).  I have tested making the change to the Excel file both 'online' via the OneDrive web app and 'offline' in the Excel desktop app.  Also, I have autosave turned off, so it is not an issue with things autosaving and causing the trigger to fire.


Has anyone else experienced this and been able to figure out what the issue is and what the solution might be?  I'm not sure if it's an issue with the trigger or an issue with the Excel action.  I've read other posts that seem to point to it maybe being an issue with the Excel action causing the modification date/time to get updated.  Screenshot of the flow can be found below:
