Data from outlook body to excel

Hi everyone!

 

I'm new with Power Automate and need help for my first flow.

 

I daily receive an email called "CO14-Update" with some data. As it is a database query it always have the same structure. For example like this:

 

E01;83483456  ;  10;MT;A;   *;2017118   ;Barcelona23   ;1X630/35

E01;83483457  ;  10;MT;A;   *;2017118   ;Barcelona04   ;1X630/35

E01;83483460  ;  10;MT;A;   *;2017345   ;Barcelona23   ;1X230/30

E01;83483473  ;  10;MT;A;   *;2000234   ;Barcelona01   ;1X140/35

 

I have an excel file in OneDrive where I copy-paste manually each day and then use Text to columns. I would like to have a flow that would do this automatically for me. The best I achieved is to copy just all the information in one cell...

 

Many thanks for your help!!

Hello,

Could you share a picture of your flow to help better understand what is going on.

Also exactly which data are you taking from the email to put in the excel file

Thanks

Thanks for your answer @Jcook 

 

The email that I get daily looks like this:

And I would like to store it in this excel table:

I have tried this flow:

What I get is just copy all the email's body in just one cell. Tried to use the email's body as a csv, but does not work. Any guess?
