Append collected approval data to a file

Is there a way to collect response received from an approval flow into one file.

I built a workflow with approval and I need to collect Approver Name, Response, Comments in a file.

I was able to save the collected data to a txt file with using the flow "Update File", but everytime I run the flow, it overide the previous record. I tried updating to an Excel, Access DB but once the record is updated the file in corrupt and cannot be displayed.

How can I have it sequanced, go to nexttline and post the record?

@mowafakgabal:

 

I suggest that you try using the Excel Online Add a Row to a Table action and store the Forms data in Excel.  This assumes that the Excel file already exists and that it is stored either in SharePoint or OneDrive.

 

Please post if you need an example.
