    Hi Guys, any idea how this works with PowerBI streaming data set?, I have a flow which pushes the DB rows to PowerBI streaming data set. The problem is SQL connector on flow is pushing all the DB rows instead of pushing the only newly created ones.

    This is creating a duplicate data in PowerBI data set. I have searched a lot in internet but couldn't found anything. Please help me if you are aware of any solution.

    Very cool, I am a old ECM guy but new to Flow. I see a couple of applications, but, I could be all wet.
    The first application is retrieving data from SQL and passing it to metadata in a SharePoint library to retrieve documents.
    The second is the reverse of that and passing metadata that was captured in SharePoint, probably from a document, to a SQL database.

    Good video! Thanks for posting it. However, I was hoping that settings for the different SQL Server connector actions would be discussed. Specifically, I am having trouble with the timeout setting on the Execute stored procedure (V2) action. I have set it to 30 minutes but it continues to fail after 2 minutes with the message "GatewayTimeout". Is this a limitation or bug or do I need to change another setting in addition to this one?

    Nice video. Note: It is a really bad practice to use IEEE Floating point numbers (like REAL, FLOAT or double) to store currency values. Or pretty much any number with fixed decimal precision that is not expected to be displayed as 10 to the power of x. It often results in rounding errors & comparison errors. eg: "WHERE Amount = 0". fails to find a row as the amount = 0.000000000001.

    Highly recommend you use either DECIMAL(13,4), NUMERIC(13,4), SMALLMONEY or MONEY to store money.

    Please read up on SQL Injection Attacks before you create a flow using "Execute a SQL Query". The example you showed is REALLY dangerous. If you permit a user to enter a value & don't check it, A hacker could bypass all your security. They could View, Update or Delete anything in your entire database. They could possibly give themselves Admin rights. Take control of your SQL System. And maybe even leapfrog onto other servers in your network. The Stored proc approach is much safer.

    Hey Jon, Thanks you all your videos! Is there a good way to use this to write a large table to SQL server (for instance 400,000 rows)? The insert one at a time in an apply to each would take too long. Thanks!

    Hi Guys,

    First of all thank you for this useful video. Does this solution work with the Oracle databases. Do you have any videos how can we set up Oracle database connection in Power Automate? Thank you again!

    Great video. Looking for some education on how to import excel into SQL Server using flow. Tried various things with no real guidance and not having any luck. Know of any videos or training I could cut my teeth on?
