Hi @kmk ,

 

The function to get image content from an excel table is not supported in Microsoft flow currently.

Hi @v-alzhan-msft , @ChristianAbata 

 

Thanks for reply,

 But do we have any alternate solution on this requirement ..?

Customers data is in Excel only, can we insert in to SharePoint along with images …?

kindly share ideas, if any

@kmk  yes my friend you can, mmm se here

https://sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/273899/import-data-from-excel-to-sharepoint

Is a way to upload excel data to sharepoint list using API, another way is doing manually.

 

I recommend you to do it, now could be a lot of work but is the way to do it well tomorrow.

Hi @ChristianAbata ,

really thanks for reply,

 

This way is really little tricky job to users again, they just want everything in PowerApps only, They will just download data from Excel and upload in to OneDrive from there they just want to update data in to SQL table.

Unfortunately data contains images also. it seems FLOW can not handle image objects to read and update.

 

@kmk  sorry as I told you and @v-alzhan-msft  confirm you don't have more ways, because use excel to save images could be a problem as you see.
