Making a flow form Email to OneDrive

I wonder if someone can help me as I am new to Automate.


I receive an excel file twice daily which I save in a separate folder on my outlook. The file name is  "Consolidated list (followed by date)". 


I want to make a flow for this file, i.e to copy this file/content of the file into OneDrive folder and than I would like to connect it to Power Apps. As I understand once a file is connected to power App the name of the file cannot be changed (or it will give error)


So, my flow should be, I get all the content of the received file from the outlook excel file and update the content on the OneDrive folder without changing the file name on the OneDrive folder.


Is there way to do this?
