Hi @LalaLa :

This is a known issue, I also encountered the issue you mentioned.

I am afraid this problem cannot be solved by Flow or PowerApps for the time being.I suggest you use this alternative first(Use UTF-8 mode to re-import the file):

  1. Open Microsoft Excel
  2. Click on the Data menu bar option.

Thanks for your reply.

 

So, this way is one of my solutions. Also I would like to know  there is another way to do this action in Power Automate or not.

Hi @LalaLa :

It's unfortunate that Flow not support UTF-8 convert

You could go to this idea forum, vote for it:
