Refresing filters on Excel spreadsheet in OneDrive

I have created a flow which updates an excel spreadsheet in Onedrive when data is added or modified in a sharepoint list.

The excel spreadsheet has set filters to hide and sort rows for web users to view as read only from a web page. Issue I have is excel doesn't seem to have dynamic filters that automatically re apply my filters when data changes.

Can anyone help?

Re: Refresing filters on Excel spreadsheet in OneDrive

Hi @JohnArrow,


Yes, when you add the Filter into the table, it is only working on the original table, if new added rows into the excel, it will not determine them whether met the filter condition, for example:

So if you add new rows the table will not hide rows not met the condition.


You could consider using the PivotTable feature in the excel file, this is the tutorial of Filter data in a PivotTable:

Thanks @v-litu-msft , I was hoping there would be a function to do this but the pivot table might be a work around.
