Upload multiple Excel Files to SQL table through Flow on a monthly basis

Hi All,

Here's my requirement - I get excel sheets from 4 vendors each month.  (4 different car leasing companies giving me details about my company's fleet resources)

I was thinking of creating a powerapp/flow that allows users to place these excel sheets at some location and run a flow directly upload these excel sheets to a sql table. I understand there is no direct way to do this through powerapps. So, can I use sharepoint to upload each of these excel files and then run a job that takes the content of the sharepoint files and pushes them to a sql database? I'll have 4 tables for each of the vendors' data. And a 5th table that will hold the consolidated data. (Can run a stored proceudre for this). The goal is to create power bi reports for the fleet data, which is why I wanted to store all of our data onto a sql database. Right now, we have lots of distributed excel sheets.

 

Thanks!

Hi @apoorvu 

 

You can upload files from PowerApp to SQL Server.

@abm- Thanks for this. The article talks about uploading images, pdfs and other such files. I don't think it'll allow me to append existing tables with the new excel files that I upload.
