Getting a row in Excel

Hi,

 

I have a flow that when an email is flagged, it created a task in Wunderlist. Works great, however it sometimes reruns, especially if a new email comes in the same conversation. From what I've seen, this is a limitation of the flagged email trigger. My workaround is to write the message id into Excel, then check that to see if it exists. If it doesn't create the task, if it does, do nothing. 

 

I'm writing data into Excel no problem, but getting the item out is tough. I see I have to use Get Rows since Get Row requires the rowid which I don't know. Get Rows gets all the rows in Excel, and now how do I check to see if the current message id exists? I can't do a for each value, since I can't set a variable to say yay or nay (unless I'm missing something). I also tried List of Item contains Message ID, no dice.

Re: Getting a row in Excel

I got it working! My workaround was to convert the array from Excel to a string, then check if it contains my message ID

 

string(body('Get_rows'))
