Retrieved data not in table format

He all,

 

I generated a report in cognos analytics.

That report is generated on daily basis and send to a specific email as an attachment. 

I have the ability to generate the report in the following formats, while it is being delivered in outlook as attachment.

Than I use flow to copy the attachment and save it to a specific sharepoint library folder as ... (excel, xml, csv, e.t.c.). 

However, i'd like to use the data in PowerBi and therefore I need the data being formatted as a table in excel. And unfortunately the data is not formatted in a table by cognos automatically. 

 

Now i'd like to find a way to copy the daily data (file 1, accumulated) in to a master file (file 2 - with a table).

''With the daily data I mean all the data that is already in the master file + the new data from yesterday!''

 

Or

I just want to format the data from cognos (html, csv, pdf, excel rows e.t.c.) into an new excel table file if possible.

 

Is it still not possible? Or has their been any changes in the connectors that makes this possible again?

I would love to hear from you guys as experts 😉

 

--> Here is a daily data examle (from the excel file without table)

Re: Retrieved data not in table format

Hi @jeremynl ,

 

Sorry for the cognos connector is not supported in microsoft flow and there is no any way could format the data from pdf to excel table in microsft flow currently, so it is impossible to achieve the requirement in microsoft flow currently.

 

Best regards,

Alice
