Merge Excel Files


Really simple question, but driving me nuts, can't find the answer anywhere. 


I have two excel files, different names lets say 1.xlsx and 2.xlsx

Both have one sheet and one table, named table1 in both cases. 


When 1.xlsx is updated, I want flow to append all rows except header row to the file 2.xlsx.


Help !!!

Hi @SteveS1 


You can trigger your Flow on updated of file 1 and then loop through all rows and add the rows to file 2

Hi @SteveS1,


Currently, there is no trigger about When an Excel file update in Excel connector. So if you want to update file 2.xslx once 1.xlsx is updated, it is hard to do.


But, could you tell me whether the file content 1.xlsx is equal to file 2.xslx?

If so, you can do these operations:

1. Create a Recurrence trigger runs every hour;

2. Get the list rows present in a table of file 2.xlsx;

3. Delete all rows of file 2.xlsx;

4. Get the list rows present in a table of file 1.xlsx;

5. Update file 2.xlsx rows from file 1.xlsx by using Apply to each.
