Update SPO List from Excel date field

Hi Community, 


I am building a flow that will keep my SPO list updated daily. The values come from an excel document with a table. 

I need to update my SPO list only with values that were created or updated in the last 4 or 5 days. The excel file has a "enteredDate" column and an "updatedDate" . 

I currently only have one condition in my flow. See below:


Excel document




What is working - the flow is pulling records and updating everything that doesn't match but not necessarily the latest updates. The flow expires because excel has too much data in it. 


I need help with creating a second condition/or the right path to ensure that my flow is only fetching the data based on the -5 days of the day of.. that can be pulled from the excel "enteredDate" and "updatedDate". 



Here is my current list - I can see some values being updated but when I validate based on the lastest/ more recent information. I am missing updates. 



Any help would be greatly appreciated.

@Dina Let's consider you want to update last week record in SPO list. In this case, you need to use flow action-Get past time'. This action gives you past week start date from current running date. Then use filter array to filter past week excel records. Please make sure that your dates- one from excel and one from Get Past Time action are in same format. 

In this way you can get your past week records from excel and then you can update your SPO List.


Let me know in case you need further help.
