Update a .csv file to a xls(x) file

I want to create a flow to update a .xls (x) file.

 

I have a .csv file that is updated daily with new rules under the existing rules from the day before.

I want this data to also be in a .xls (x) file if an update of the .csv has taken place.

This one will not work, after the update excel can`t open the .xlsx file.

HI @frixel2 

 

That won't work. You're replacing the contents of the file and not the actual values in the Excel file.

 

You have here a nice explanation in how to deal with CSV files:

Then you just need to do a "For Each" and insert the data in Excel like this:
