IDEA - Excel to PA

I need some approach ideas to help with an implementation.

 

I have several complex Excel VBA scripts that strip out formatted reports into structured data.  We do this daily for client confirmations.  I would like to upload each name and phone number into Power Automate which will in turn connect to Zipwhip's API and text-confirm our client.

 

What is the best way to move data OUT of excel and into PA ... and on a daily basis?

Thank you all!  PA rocks!

Hello @wiredupjax 

Suggest you to upload the Excel file to a folder in a document library in SharePoint Online or a OneDrive.

Have a recurrent flow process all the Excel files in that folder, extracting the information needed using the Excel connector.

Each file that have been processed is then moved into another folder, to ensure it is not processed again.

 

Not sure if the above fulfills your needs, but come back to us with more details as you see fit 🙂

Kind regards, John
