Flow get list of rows form excel with ODATA filter

Hello EveryOne.

 

Please could you help me with ODATA and Excel online.

I connect to excel file with located on sharepoint site and I would like to get all rows form it.

 

How to get all rows by using List rows present in table component with ODATA filter?

 

I tried:

1. startswith(‘name of employee’, ‘Bob’)
answer: !sAj1K!’)’ or ‘,’ expected at position …
2. startswith(name of employee, ‘Bob’)
answer: !sAj1K!’)’ or ‘,’ expected at position …
3. startswith(“name of employee”, ‘Bob’)
answer: “!LKrqa!Syntax error: character ‘\”‘ is not valid at position …
4. startswith(name_x0020_of_x0020_employee”, ‘Bob’)
answer: “Invalid filter clause: cannot find the ‘name_x0020_of_x0020_employee’ column.
But this column is set in table.

 

But these are not help.

Hi @NikolayErlikh,

 

Please add a "Filter Array" action in the flow, you could refer to screenshot below to create the flow:

The flow would run successfully to filter out the rows as below:

Smiley Sad Does not work if you have more than 256 records. Has anyone found a way around it?

Make sure Pagination is turned on and your value is above the total count of rows in your table. 

Hi I tried doing the same. the flow ran without any hitch. However the table which I wanted to filter did not get updated event after the flow run. I checked the input and output after test run, it shows that the filtering has indeed happened, however not updated in the table in the excel file

Is it possible to use odata to filter on a column with a space in the name?

This is my question, too. I haven't yet figured out how to create an odata query to filter my Excel file, but it seems like that functionality is already built here?
