How to filter a table to spit out rows only with specified dates?

So I have a powerapp that collets information for a few seperate tables.  Here's what I need to happen, I need to filter out the data of a table based on that week and spit it out to some type of file to email to their boss.  So all of the data from Monday to Friday of that week.  I thought if I created another table asking for the first day of that week and the last day of the week, I could use that information to filter out the other table and get the correct output.  Although I am not getting this to work and I sorely need your guys' help!  Thanks!

HI @Salamander94 

Can you please share a screenshot of the flow you have created? That way we might be able to assist you better. 


You can get the items created in the past week by filtering the ODATA filter query : Created ge ticks(addDays(utcnow(),-7)). This will get the items created in the past 7 days. 


Hope this Helps!

HI @Salamander94 


I was assuming that you are using a sharepoint list. Unfortunately, this "created" does not work with excel. 


If you work on an SP List, you would use the filter as shown in the screenshot below: 



Hope this Helps!


As in the table I need to filter has to be on a SP list?


HI @Salamander94 


No! So be anywhere, excel connector does not support created on parameter at row levels. So basically, you would have to create an item for each row in the excel (cut out excel completely and use SP list as table and items as rows) only then we can benefit out of the created on/ modified on parameter. Unless you add a coulmn in the excel table and get an input as a created on date from the user. 


Hope this Helps!

Hi @Salamander94,


There might be some limitations when using Filter query of action List rows present in a table of Excel connector.


Currently only single ‘eq’, ‘ne’, ‘contains’, ‘startswith’ or ‘endwith’ is currently supported in Filter query of action List rows present in a table.


For your scenario to get rows within specific date range, I am afraid that it is not possible to be achieved.


Hope this could be a reference for you.
