Export Sharepoint list items in excel and send excel as an attachment in mail

Hi,

 

I'm trying to create my first flow and I'm facing issues.

 

Problem statement: I have a Sharepoint list of 50 columns.

I need to export certain columns from the Sharepoint list to excel and send the excel file as an attachment to users in an email.

This needs to be done on daily basis at a scheduled time.

Or

If certain columns from the list could be exported and pasted in the email body would also work for me.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

 

Create a scheduled flow with recurrence details.

You can use filter query option in 'Get Items', to fetch the specific columns.

Create and export them as excel.

 

Then use 'Attachment' option in email to send your excel in email.

Hey mate, See artilce - http://www.sharepointsamples.com/export-sharepoint-list-items-as-csv-using-microsoft-flow/ 

 

This is the template  https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/galleries/public/templates/8fae6a167d4b419aa04e7de0b58ccb66/copy-sh...

 

You can also use Limit columns by view option. While retrieving list items, you can now limit the columns by view - For details see - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/business-apps/power-automate/guidance/working-with-g...
