Excel With HTML Data



 I am coming here to hopefully get some help with a flow I am building. The end goal is to feed a email attachement to sharepoint to link with Tableau.


Here is what I have...


Email comes in with zipped attachement.

Flow picks up the attachement and saves to business onedrive

Flow UnArchives the contents into a new file in business onedrive

Flow Moves to SharePoint List & Changes name to replace existing file.


The problem i am having is the content of the archived folder is .xls, however the content is apparently html from the source table.


So there is a missmatch when going into Tableau. I am wanting to convert the contents of the Excel to either a text, CSV, or a true .xls File.


I cant figure out how to accomplish this so far so any help would be greatly appreciated!


Thanks! Aron

Was this ever resolved? I am having the same issue.

I have managed to save the file as a .xls however when i open it and Save As, it says the file is .html

I want to be able to update the file format via automate. Thanks.
