Sharepoint List to Excel

I am currently working on a request system that uses SharePoint lists. My goal is to take a submitted request and then import it into a dynamically generated excel worksheet that has a tab for each request. The request tool can sometimes upload multiple rows attached to the same request ID. This is because each item in the request is created as a new row. Is there a way to import the data for the request ID into excel? Currently, I am running into the issue where I try to insert a row it says: "The request entity's media type 'text/plain' is not supported for this resource."

Hello Jmullins513,

Yes, thie request could be achieved by adding rows in excel online while could you share more details like your flow snapshot on your mentioned exception 'The request entity's media type 'text/plain' is not supported for this resource'

Simialr issue could be for your reference first:

The power app currently uploads to a SharePoint list and then I am trying to take the rows that have the same Request ID and create a new table in Excel. The issue I think is from the table being dynamically generated it doesn't display the different column names. Attached is a screenshot of what I am doing. The screenshot shows a CSV to excel, but ideally it takes the info right from the SharePoint list. The goal of this is to give the person reviewing the requests a really easy way to find and edit the pending ones.
