How do I Create a new excel file from a master file

I have a master excel file that has a table and models how I want the information mapped out.  I want to create a new excel file and name it based on the project number.  I want to be able to populate all the part numbers and their associated information into the file.  If one is already created, I want to add the information.  Any assistance would be great as I try to navigate this.

Re: How do I Create a new excel file from a master file

Hi @PMavrich ,

 

It seems that you have a template Excel, and then you want to create a new Excel file from the template, populating information into the newly created file.

 

Currently, it is possible to create a new Excel file and name it based on the project number, using action Get file content and Create file.

 

However, dynamic contents are not supported in File and Table fields of Excel Online actions, so I am afraid that it is not possible to populate info into the newly created file.

 

Here is one of the similar requests on Flow ideas Forum, please feel free vote and comment the idea at here:

Best regards,
