Create SharePoint list items from Excel rows

Hi,

 

I need to create multiple SharePoint list items from multiple Excel rows.

I use Excel Get rows and SharePoint Create item. I can create multiple items but only with Title column.

When I try to enter other columns from Excel to other fields, the only option is SharePoint item ID.

Fields Value and Price are my custom SharePoint columns.

 

 

 

Is it possible to create SP items with multiple fields from Excel?

 

Regards,

Marcin

Re: Create SharePoint list items from Excel rows

@MarcinS I hope I understand your scenario correctly, you are trying to insert values from multiple columns in Excel (e.g. price, value columns) to corresponding columns in sharepoint list (so price, value column), is that right?

 

I created a sample flow Recurrence -> Get Rows from Excel -> Insert into SharePoint list and I'm able to insert SP items from multiple columns in Excel. Here's my excel table:

Here's my Flow:

And the result in SP list:

Is this the scenario that you were trying? Let me know if that helps.

I lost number formatting in Excel and that was a problem.

Thank you for the hint!

Re: Create SharePoint list items from Excel rows

When "Value" is chosen for some reason for the Title, Value and Price there is no Excel tagged options.  Is there I missed?

Re: Create SharePoint list items from Excel rows

I just tried to do this, but every time the recurrence occurs, it adds another item for all entries, not just new or edited ones.  Is there a way to just have it update any changes that are made instead of creating additional copies?
