Create Flow with Excel list saved at normal company network

Hello all,

 

I want to create a Flow which updates Planner from an Excel list.

It works fine with the Excel list saved on sharepoint. 

 

But the Excel list I need to work with is saved at the company network.

How can I select the company network?

 

Thank you and Best regards

Mario

So the excel file is not on cloud, but on premise file system?

 

If so, then you need to install an on-premise gateway.

Hi @ms17vfb , you can scroll down to the bottom, have a try of entering the source url as custom value, see if you are able to access.

Hello,

 

thanks for your help.

 

How do I enter the source?

 

If the path (which I copied from Explorer) is for example:  \\global\germany\xxx\yyy\zzz and the file name is test1 

 

Thank you.

sorry for posting again. But I'm unable to work with the Excel List, saved at company network. I can't enter the path of the excel file. 

Can somebody help? What am I doing wrong?

Thank you and best regards
