Merging information from two excel files into a single formated document

I haven't built the flow yet as I am not sure how to get the pieces together.  I have two excel files that have pulled information from forms.  I need to pull from one row in the first excel file and have it populate the title portion of my word document.  Then I want to take the entire contents of the other excel document and have it populate a table with in the same file.  I was thinking an array might work but not sure how to put all of this together.  I need all of this to be an automated process kicked off by a move in trello or a completion of a form. Any assistance would be appreicated.

Hi @PMavrich ,

 

I am afraid that it is not possible to achieve your scenario currently. We could get a row and list all the rows present in a table. However, it is not possible to populate a table within the same file.

 

If you want to populate value into a word document, please try with action Populate a Microsoft Word template.

 

Before you start using this action, please remember enable the Developer tab of the word document.

 

Then you could populate value from the form to the word template directly.

@v-yamao-msftThis is the information I need to populate.  It will be coming from a table and one file will have all the part information.  Would the part information be populated through an array?Capture.JPGfile.png
