Using an Excel file

Hi: 

 

I'm using some excel file to obtain rows to work with. This excel has a query through Power Query complement. When Flow access to the file, include a new column with a Powerapps code. After that I can't refresh data from power query and I have to delete the sheet result to recharge again. 

 

Do you have any solution? 

 

By the way, do exist any way to refresh the power query data automatically?

Re: Using an Excel file

Hi @desteban,

 

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

Have you take a try to get the new excel data?

Please share more details so we would try to provide a proper workaround for you.

 

Best regards,

Alice

Re: Using an Excel file

Sure, I'll try to explain better. 

 

First of all: 

 

1) I have an excel file with power query complement using a query to obtain data from a SQL data base. In normal use, I can refresh data in seconds to update the data. Te result goes to in a table. 

 

From Flow: 

 

I have a flow thats, every week, gets the row data from the table and something with the results. Flow include a column at the end of the table like this: 

 

__PowerAppsId__

OQOPzVCtwiA

 

 

 

After that, next week, when I have to refresh the query, doesn't function and I have to delete the result table and recharge again in a new sheet to obtain a new result table, it allows to refresh an obtain a new result that it can be read again from Flow.

 

From Flow I have using:

I seems that the connector from flow (obtain rows) add a column that disable the refresh of data from a power query connections. 

 

I hope I could explain myself more clearly.
