Anyway to read a xlsm file and copy content to a sharepoint list?

I have a marco-enabled excel file in a share point folder. 

Would it be possible to create a flow that can get content of the file and update a list in sharepoint?



Thanks for the help!

Re: Anyway to read a xlsm file and copy content to a sharepoint list?

Hi @shreymudgal ,

 

As @tfhegdbn  suggested, Excel Online (Business) connector can only get contents of xls and xlsx files. Working with macro-enabled files is currently not supported yet.

 

There is a similar request on Flow Ideas Forum, please vote the idea at here:

In addition, I will help collect and report it as well. PGs will take hot ideas into consideration first in future releases.

 

Best regards,

Mabel

I did the test, it seems that the Excel online action can only get the contents of the xls or xlsx files.

Hi,

 

One possible solution is to use the OneDrive connector for converting the file to a new xls file and then use that file for the import into your list.

 

Thanks

Ah I'd not tested it, my apologies.
