Importing Excel Table to use Inforamtions in Sharepoint list

What i want to do:
1. Import a Excel (in my case a .xlsb) file

2. Filter for Colume X to only give out Lines with "A-" in front of the number

3. Use the found Line(s) to Update the Element "A-....." 

I think 2. and 3. should be easy doable with a Odata filters. 

Now my Problem: 
Refering to this Post it is not possible to get any informations on Columes etc. without they having a defined Table in them.
Wich my importatet Table has not, so my question is:
A) is there a workarround/ Possibility to get the needed informations (Colume A - M) some how without the "List rows present in table" action or

B) is there a way to Automate the creating a table in a sheet so i can use the "List rows present in table" action ?

Thanks for helping me out,



Hi @Totyika how are you?


Regarding your question, the Excel connector expect a table to return the lines inside the file and yes there is an action to create a table inside a Excel file using Excel Online (Business)


Another actions are documented at
