Hi @MH3 

 

Please have a look at Get file content using path for retrieving the file from your local desktop. You need to install the gateway and configure it.

Also below link will help how to save the file to a network drive.

 

Solved: Save email attachment to network drive - Power Platform Community (microsoft.com)

 

Thanks

Hi @abm ,

 

I have seen this post, but I am right now having a PowerApp application in which user will select a File which should be (XLSX) and then upload it to the network drive for further process.

Any workaround?

Hi @MH3 

 

I was thinking call the flow from PowerApp to retrieve the files using Get files content using path and return as a collection. Display files in your Power App. Later once the user is selected you could pass the filename back to another flow to save the information from the original folder to network folder.

 

Thanks

@abm Well, actually I have created an ETL Process in SSIS which will get the file from the On_Prem Network folder and then it will process that file and insert it into SQL DataWarehouse.

So, for the file the user wants a PowerApp application in which they will attach a file from there local PC and then when they click on Upload button the file should be upload to there network drive, from there the SSIS package will run and take that file and process it. 

 User will upload the file Monthly on that network drive, through powerapps.

I am stuck at the PowerApps part can you please help me?
