However, I would like to allow respondents to come back to the form, quote the ID and provide updated responses by using Update row in excel in microsoft flow. The updated responses should get saved in the same row with that ID, but I can't figure out how to do that.
How do I get the responses for questions 4 and 5 updated into the same row with that ID? I know I can use sharepoint list but I am trying to avoid that as my form is much longer than this.
