How to form the data to a table in Excel via Flow?

Dear experts, 


I have an excel file which contains the data generated from system. This row data is an excel file that has column header and one record per row. The row data is not in Table format. Is there any way that we can form the excel's data to a table automatically via Flow?


Many thanks!

Hey @TomLu1231 


To use the excel online connector to get individual row items, the data needs to be formatted as a table only. Can you share more details on the data schema you currently have? Maybe you can manually format the data to a table by selecting the entire data set in excel and formatting it as a table. And then you can get it in flow row wise and perform any further operations as intended. 


Hope this Helps!

Hi @yashag2255  thanks for your answer! The data I got is just an Rxcel file like below. It has the column headers and one record per row. But it is not a table format.

Currently, I am doing exactly you what you mentioned which is to manually format the data to a table by selecting the entire data set in that Excel and formatting it as a table. Then upload to a shared folder to trigger the flow to list down all the records in that Table. 


I am wondering whether it is possible that we can use Flow to automate the formatting table part. So that I can just upload the Excel file without any manual actions. Is it possible to achieve that?


Many thanks!
