Update file metadata in SharePoint with data from excel rows

Hello Cat Happy

 

My Flow is getting a folder with documents from OneDrive and creates the same files in a Document Library in SharePoint.This works fine, but I want to update all the files with metadata (after the file is created).

The metadata comes from a table in excel. The table looks like this:

There is as many rows as files. So every row is data which belongs to a document.

 

My library:

Document libraryDocument library

 

My FlowMy Flow

It seems like my flow updates every document with every row, which is not what I want, so something is wrong in my logic. 

 

Appreciate any answers and thoughts Cat Happy

Hi @dogemaster , 

 

Do you have a unique identifier to update the metadata of a particular file in your excel sheet? If so, please check the screenshot below and replicate the steps:

What I am doing here is -> List the files from onedrive and create an apply to each loop with the list of these files. Now, get a row from excel sheet (this row should have a unique identifer with respect to the current file. I have considered the DisplayName of the file. So you should have a column of display name in your excel with the names of all your docs/files with the corresponding meta data). Now you create the file, get the properteies and simply update the metadata with the excel row values rspectively. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Hi @dogemaster ,

 

I agree with the method provided by @yashag2255 . You may need a field similar to Lookup column to get the row specified in the Excel table and update the value inside to the Library.

It seems that you could use File Name as the lookup field and then find the corresponding record in the Excel table.

Please take a try.
