Error when saving Excel

Hi All,


I'm trying to test desktop flow on Power Automate Desktop.

What I want to automate is scraping web page and save it in Excel. 

When saving Excel, I got an error like below but actually the excel file was saved on specified location well.

I don't know why this error has been occurred. please let me know some guidance to resolve this error.


[Error Msg]

Failed to save Excel document 'C:\Users\demouser\OneDrive - Contoso\Demo1\Demo1_Result_마이크로소프트.xlsx'.
