Import excel to existing list

Hi,

I want to create a flow that will be triggered daily by uploading an excel file to a specific folder. Then Flow should get rows from this file and put them into the existing list.

Each excel file will have the same columns (table).

The problem appears:
This works only if the file already exists on SP library.

Is a way to do it?

Hi @KrzysztofS88 ,

It seems you want to add the excel data into a list when you upload the excel file to a folder.

I have made some tests on my side, there are two problems in the flow.

First, you need Select an Excel file through File Browse in the 'List rows present in a table'.

Second, when you create the item, you need use the dynamic content from the excel file.

However when you create the flow, the excel file hasn't been uploaded.

So you can't get the file and use the data from the file.

So I am afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.

I am afraid you need create a flow after you have upload the excel file to the folder.

And you can only get a specific file each time with the 'List rows present in a table' action.
