Copy records from Excel file to SharePoint List

I already found some very useful input on how to do this, but I'm stuck on one part. I actually want the user to browse for the Excel file (standard format) and select it from a local folder (or a folder placed on the user's OneDrive for Business) and then run the get rows and import to the list. It is just this first part to select the local file that I'm missing.

Is it possible to do this?

Really appreciate any guidance!

Re: Copy records from Excel file to SharePoint List

Hi @ThomasHager,

 

Have you tried the connector File system on your side? Connect to File Systems on your local or network machines to read from and write to files using the On-Premises Data Gateway. Please take the doc on File system for more details:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/filesystem/

 

Then when using the action “Excel – Get rows”, change the connection to File system to get the Excel file saved on your local PC.

 

Please take a try with it.

Re: Copy records from Excel file to SharePoint List

That looks like a really neat solution. Many thnks for the guidance. I was just thinking - if I settle with having the Excel file in question on OneDrive, would that allow me to simplify the solution and skip the data gateway? What would be the equivalent step to the File System setup in such limited approach? Thanks again!
