Copy CSV data to Dynamics 365

Hello guys,

 

am having a special task in my mind and I was hopping if Flow is capable to do it. So the story is. There are some automated people counters at the door entrances and am able to create csv report with actual numbers (date, time, entrance id, number of people comming thru) to be sent to some o365 mailbox. So then I want a flow to check this mailbox get the attachment and copy over this data in to entity in Dynamics365 or in to sharepoint list. 

 

Any ideas? Am I too optimistic?

Re: Copy CSV data to Dynamics 365

Hi @Frantisek,

 

If you would like to update each fields into Dynamics 365 entity, then I am afraid using CSV file may not working.

 

Get the CSV file directly from the Attachments is possible, but currently within Microsoft Flow it is not available to analyze the CSV file data.

 

You should first consider convert CSV data into an Excel table, then using the Excel connector to create new rows in Dynamics 365.

Re: Copy CSV data to Dynamics 365

Hi Team!

 

Thank you for your reply. I can switch the file format of exports to XLS, but still its not formatted as excel Table. Does it make any difference?

You can use Parse CSV action from Plumsail Documents connector. It allows you to convert CSV into an array and variables for each column. Please read this article demonstrating how it works.

 

Then you could iterate through result array and insert records into your SQL table.
