Merge excel files to one file

Hi, all

 

I am new for the Automate.

Current situation is I want to build below flow to reduce the manual works. For example:

1. there are three excel files there, named a.xlsx, b.xlsx, c.xlsx, storaged at SharePoint, they all only have one worksheet respectively are named A, B, C

2. I need copy worksheets A, B, C and paste them to the d.xlsx files which will contain these three worksheets in it.

3. Once above done, i need a trigger that once these files been updated, the d.xlsx will automatically update.

@Cola  to answer your questions

 

1. there are three excel files there, named a.xlsx, b.xlsx, c.xlsx, storaged at SharePoint, they all only have one worksheet respectively are named A, B, C

If you want to copy all the content in the files, you need to be shure that every file has the data into a tables.

2. I need copy worksheets A, B, C and paste them to the d.xlsx files which will contain these three worksheets in it.

If you have all the data in tables you can read it using the action list rows present in a table one action per file

3. Once above done, i need a trigger that once these files been updated, the d.xlsx will automatically update.

You can't do this automatically becouse there are no trigger that allows you to know when a new row is added so you need to find a way to do it by using recurrence like once per week or another using trigger action like, when an email arrives.

Hi, Christian

 

Thanks a lot for your quick reply. Actually, I got some idea from Community that "List Rows present in a table", but i also met issue with this. Wonder that if you can help on this.

As you can see below, I have some dummy data in the a.xlsx files. But when i try to select the table name in the Power Automate, it alert me that no items there. This is very strange thing to me. I also tried other site's files from SharePoint, still the same.

Hope you can help me to solve this.
