Excel Email Attachment -> Create new email

Hello All - 

 

I'm new to Flow and just doing some experimenting.

 

Here's what I'm trying to do:

1) I receive a weekly CSV file that I normally open in Excel

2) I filter on a certain set of Rows (column filter)

3) Do a count of records

4) Send that count via email to a co-worker.

 

Is this somethig that could be automated by Flow?  Just trying to learn and find limitations, etc.

 

Thanks!

Hi @tbully ,

I am afraid MS Flow can only achieve part of your scenario currently.

You can only deal with the excel file(Select an Excel file through File Browse) which is already exist in the Sharepoint or Onedrive.

So to achieve your scenario, I think you need multiple flows here.

First you need save the excel file into the SharePoint or Onedrive.

Then, you need use the excel connector to filter the file as you want.

However, one flow can only deal with one specific file(the already exist file).
