Update a SQL database record from email response

I have a couple of flows that will send out emails for approvals, but I am running into a slight problem. The flow will send the email, with the response, but I need to update the corresponding SQL record with the response. Is this possible? The initiating app is a PowerApp, and the flow is set to run after the patch statement is executed.

So I was trying to do this, and it wasn't working last night, but with some playing, I was able to finally get it to work. What I did was pass it the last row id number + 1, since this number is auto-assigned. My biggest issue was to do this for multiple records at once, but I was able to put this into my ForAll loop. Thank you for your help!

Hi @AthenaDepper,

 

How is your flow triggered?

Please try to use the action Update row to update an existing row in a table. Note, a primary key is required when using Update row action.

If your flow is triggered by a PowerApps button, you could specify the required Row id and Id from PowerApps, then update the email response to the table.

If you are using SQL Azure Database table, you could consider using triggers in the SQL connector, so that your flow could be triggered when an item is created, then update the corresponding item with the email response.

Please take a try with it on your side.

The following docs for your reference:
