Microsoft Flow for Excel (preview)

I have been trying to use this Mircrosoft Flow for Excel preview without success:

I have been able to create a flow OK

However the window add on in Excel remains blank / empty when i click on Flow

I called support who made me use Excel Online instead.

It has worked with Excel Online, but no more: same symptom.


(if it helps, I have a Microsoft account and 2 professional accounts on this machine )

Hi @jmdhT,


Could you please share a screenshot of the configuration of your flow?

Have you checked your flow run history to see if your flow has run successfully as below:



If your flow has run successfully, please close your excel and then re-open it to see if the row is added in the excel.


Best regards,

Did this get resolved ?  I have the same issue where the Flow Preview pane fails to laod , It has worked a handful of times so I know the flow itself is correct but cannot load anything in the preview pane

No. And support has a hard time understanding the issue.Still hopefull. It has never worked for me within Excel, and 'randomly' and scarcely within Excel online.

I can see lots of users stating the same issue with a blank preview pane, but no one seems to have an answer.


when its works its a great solution but seems to have a major bug in  it

Hi Not 100% sure this is a fix that can be applied but I cleared out the all of the O365 creditials in the Credential manager and also cleared the broswer cache to clear out all of the office details


It has worked since I did that and it doesnt appear to lose the flow information.


I havent been able to recreate the issue to say wether the fix will work on all users but its worked for me


Hope this works for others

I was hoping it would work for me. 

Online, i can see my flows, but when i clieck on one of them, the flow pane becomes "blank"


With Desktop Excel, i still have the same issue.


Too bad...
