Update the Key ID in excel when new response was submitted

Hi,

 

I have created a flow in which when a response from MS Form is submitted, a row is added to an excel table with some data from the Form.

 I want to update the value in Key ID. For example, my last Key ID was 23 the updated should be 24. 

 

how I can do that

 

Thanks in advance

Cheers

SM

Hi @shoaibsam12 

 

Couple of ways you can do this, 

1. Create a calculation in the column in excel itself such that every cell is the sum of the previous cell value and 1. This way you do not have to update it from flow. 

 

2. Add an action to list rows present in a table. In a compose action use the length function to get the length of items returned on the list rows action. in the key value, use the add function to add the length and then 1 to increment that value. 

 

Hope this Helps!
