Calling Actions from Copilot Studio

Items in Excel table do not match

Posted on by 6

Hello Everyone,


I'm quite new to VPA, however I have been using for a while power apps.

I'm now trying to pass information from VPA to an excel file. I create a table with Excel placed in OneDrive business and call the routine "Add a row into a table". 


Everything looks "almost" fine, however when select the table I see items I never entered 






I have no idea what they are and additionally VPA gives an error because of that 

How can rid of them?

    thanks @Expiscornovus !

    That was indeed the issue! I was using the suggested/pre-made actions and that apparently does not work well for me. Did as you suggested and indeed those fields disappeared.


    Thanks a lot!

    Hi @carlosnt78,


    This could be fields which have been previously used in the action.


    The easiest way to get rid of this is by removing the Add a new row into a table action and adding it back again to your flow.
