Powerautomate & Excel

I want to make the following flow:

  • Start on every day on Monday to Friday at 8 am
  • In a Excel file, look for the cell with today's date 
  • Get the value from the cell below the cell with the date 
  • Save it as a string 

How can I make such a flow?

I've never done anything with Powerautomate.

 

Thanks

Hi @ThomasKoller 

You can create a scheduled cloud flow.

Add List rows present in a table and configure it.(my excel is stored in sharepoint)

Add Filter array action to filter out rows whose date is equal to today.

Expression:

formatDateTime(item()?['Date'],'yyyy-MM-dd')

vLilyWmsft_4-1643015510619.png

Expression:

formatDateTime(utcNow(),'yyyy-MM-dd')

vLilyWmsft_5-1643015631568.png

Expression:

formatDateTime(item()?['Date'],'yyyy-MM-dd')

Save and test the flow.

This is my test excel.

After flow runs, will get rows with date equal to today.
