Auto populate excel template

Hi I am brand new to automate and am trying to create flow to reduce manual data inputting. 

I have a team of engineers that will be completing a ms form once completing a job. 
The responses I get from the form need to auto populate into an excel template creating a new workbook for every form submission.  Each question on the form needs to appear in a designated cell. 

Example;

1. Engineer A completes ms form and submits it. 
2. A new workbook is automatically created from a template.
3. The response data is automatically populated into specific cells. 

When another engineer submits a form a new work book needs to be created again……

 

Can anyone guide me to the best methods for this please. Hope this makes sense

Hi,

 

FYI I'm also new to PA and am basically trying to do the same thing - open Excel template file, populate, and save to new. I've put some details of what I've tried in my post here:
