Problem using Excel feature - create excel table



I had a daily working flow that uses excel create table feature, last week that flow continuously failed on that connector.


I have not made any changes recently in that flow and still im getting error message - bad request with the body attached:


"status": 400,
"message": "The expression \"drives('b!OWWXXXXXXXXhXXXwHTcrRZch_Iw0ugzK')/items/b!OWW8QXXXXCELFZBwDZ1XXXXXLJKqq4Pvqh6XXXXX2EFE7RFLV5MA6XDXA7FL\" is not valid.\r\nclientRequestId: XXXXXX",
"source": ""



please advise.


thanks, Eli.

Hi @elizi ,


Recently MS Flow has updated some features.

The configuration of Document Library including OneDrive is not the same as before.


You could try to reconfigure Create table action. It is recommended to select the option in the drop-down list instead of manually entering the Custom value when configuring Document Library field.

Please take a try.

Thanks for your response.


In my flow i can't pick a value from a drop down list because the value doesn't exists before the flow starts.


I use dynamic content from previous steps in my flow to enter a value in the "field" value in "create table" action, so i can't longer use the previous method for filling my dynamic values.


if you familiar with other work around - i will gladly happy to hear.





Same issue : how can we set dynamic file in create table excel business ?
