Update SharePoint list with Excel Data, Referencing List Column (Basically Vloopkup from Excel in SharePoint)

Hello All,

 

I feel like I am close to a solution, but just can't quite figure it out.

 

I have a list in SharePoint and a reference file in Excel (table). I am trying to find a way using flow, where I can enter the first column of data in the sharepoint list (and ID Number), then flow looks for that number in my excel file, and updates the rest of my sharepoint list columns with data from the excel sheet. I want this to happen each time I add a line in my sharepoint list. I do not want it to add a new line in my sharepoint list automatically (just update the remaining columns).

I assume you are saving your excel file in one drive or SharePoint and your excel file range is formatted as a table , if yes you can use the List Rows action with a Filter Expression, then you can use the returned data to update your sharepoint list.

In the red box, where you have IDnumber, is that suppose to be the name of a column in an excel table?  I am able to populate the second part of that equation with a sharepoint data field, but it doesn't give me the option for excel column fields.

I tried filtering this way, but now I think I can't figure out what to put in 'Id' field. It says my flow ran successfully, but nothing updated.

Yes the Left side of the red box is the Excel Column name and the right hand side is the value from your sharepoint list.
