Flow to enter data to excel spreadsheet on SharePoint from Microsoft Forms

We have spreadsheet that resides in Sharepoint and needs to be updated daily by over 100 users. 

 

Co Authoring works but there have several times where someone messes the spreadsheet up and we need to start from the last time it was saved properly.

 

We think a foolproof way would be to create a Form with just the 3-4 fields that need to be entered into Excel.

 

How do I create a flow that takes the fields filled out and submitted in the Form and enters it into Excel?

Hi @MAF,

 

Microsoft Flow is now can connect to files in SharePoint document libraries, please take the following blog for more details:

https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/approval-history-accessibility/

 

About your scenario, you could create an Excel file then format it to table, saving it to a document library.

 

I have made a test on my side. please check the following screenshot for a reference. In the action Add a row into a table, please make sure specify the right location and document library.

Please take a try with it on your side and feel free reply if you need more help.

Re: Flow to enter data to excel spreadsheet on SharePoint from Microsoft Forms

Sir,

I want to fill a form data to a specific cell in my excel template,

ie, the filled name in the form should appear as cell A2 in my excel template which is there is sharepoint documents.

or the same form data is there in sharepoint list, i have to take that data and fill in specific cells in my exel template. name in list should appear in cell A2, address in A9:E9(which is merged and so on)

Excel is not just a table, it is a template where data to be inserted into specific cells.

 

 

is this possible
