Extract data from excel file attached to sharepoint list


I need to extract data from an excel file cell, attached to sharepoint list and write it in a dedicated sharepoint field.

Is that possibile? I wrote the attacchment flow and it work perfectly but I don't know how to extract the A1 cell data from the attachment excel file and write it in one sharepoint filed of the same "new element" in sharepoint.

Does the attached excel file has data in a excel table? If the data is not in excel table, you cannot read from Power Automate.


Please confirm.

No, during the upload the file is empty, I fill it up when the upload is finished.
I need something lik "if A1 is filled, write the data on column1 in sharepoint" is that possibile?
