How to Get Dynamic Table on Runtime

Hi All,

 

I have created a total 3 table in Excel sheet on runtime.

Screenshot 2019-09-26 19.15.23.png

Now, I want that table on RUNTIME only to perform my next task to add values in those tables as below.

Screenshot 2019-09-26 19.33.12.png

 

But as you can see it is not populated. . . Kindly Guide me. 

 

Note: Kindly make sure I am generating Runtime TABLE and try to add values in those tables. (i.e. Excel sheet columns.) Statically it's working Fine but Dynamically not working.

 

Kindly help me in this Task.

Hey @bhavinrshah 

 

A known limitation with the excel connectors is that the list rows in a table, update rows etc. such actions, need teh excel sheet and the table already in the document library. Which means that you can use these actions only on files selected from the folder icon and the tables in the drop down then (the tables need to be there in the excel while creating the flow itself). Currenlty it is not directly supported to reference to the tables created in the flow to an action for excel within that flow itself. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Hi @bhavinrshah ,

 

Please refer to the following blog to learn how to get excel file and Excel table dynamically:

http://johnliu.net/blog/2019/5/workarounds-needed-to-use-the-excel-connector-in-microsoft-flow

But unfortunately it seems that it only can get excel table, we are unable to configure Excel table on Runtime, I am afraid that MS Flow does not support such a feature.
