Launch an excel file with Excel Web App by pushing a botton in Flow.

Hello Everyone, 

 

i'm realizing a simple App that trigger a flow to create an excel file in a sharePoint Path. After this, i would like to open that file with the Excel Web App (can be ok also the excel client) for easy to use by my collegue. 

I create a flow which returns to the app the path of the file just created.

I use that value in a (Path string) on a "Launch()" function, and I expect that with that function, the file will be opened with the web app, but what happens is that the file is downloaded, and that is not what i espect. 

 

Please can anyone help me to find a solution?

 

Many thanks, Andi

Hi @ChristianAbata , yes. 

 

I used this script: Launch("ms-excel:ofe|u|"&"https://m365x900954.sharepoint.com/sites/commessa.beantech"&varPath.path_file)

but it doesn't work. 

 

before it i used: Launch("https://m365x900954.sharepoint.com/sites/commessa.beantech"&varPath.path_file) but this is works only for the mobileapp, in fact if i push the powerapps button from desktop, what it did is to download my file... but i don't want that, i need to opne it with the web or desktop app (whenever, not important which one).

 

Please help me to understand the right way,

 

BR and many thanks

And

varPath_File is the value of the path of the file that i want to open (i got it from my flow to powerapps)

What before is the address of the sharepoint site where to get the file

 

thank-s
