Text search in Excel mail attachments

Greetings!

The task is to move email messages to a specific email subfolder, based on the condition if that email had an attachment(s) of any Excel type (i.e. .xls, .xlsx, .xlsm) containing one of a given words.

Let's say we need to move emails, that contain words "Alfa" or "Bravo" in any cell of any Excel attachment, to the subfolder "Charlie".

Re: Text search in Excel mail attachments

Hi @Namudril ,

I am afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.

You can filter the excel files via flow from the email attachments.

Howerer, there is no way to convert the excel file content to String or Array.

So there is no way to check whether the file contain the specific words.

If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:
