Re: Power automate to read uploaded excel documents in SharePoint List and get its content into the list (appending)

See the following templates for a good starting point:

The basic logic for your Flow would likely be:

  1. When an item is created
  2. Get attachments
  3. Get attachment content / List rows present in table
  4. Create item

Please note, that the Excel connector for Power Automate has many Known issues and limitations, so it isn't recommended if at all possible. 

If you could provide an expanded screenshot of your Flow and steps, and of any detailed error messages you're receiving we could likely better assist you. Also, for the best results, you may want to review How to write a good forum post.

Hi @PytByt,

 

There is some way could get the file content when a file uploads in a SharePoint folder, but not include excel file.

If you want to get the excel file, you should use the list rows present in a table action. And select excel file only supports select from drop down, so if you want to get all rows from multiple excel tables, you should select them one by one.
