When an excel file is modified extract rows

Hello guys,

 

I'm building an automated flow that fetch the modified rows from 83 files in a single folder, and import it in a single excel file. All files have the same columns names.

 

I prefer the whole process can be done in the sharepoint without using the OneDrive

 

Here is my flow with an issue of extracting the updated row.

Re: When an excel file is modified extract rows

Hey @Malamri 

 

Can you share more details on the scenario that you are trying to build? Currently there is no direct way to identify and extarct what rows were modified in the excel sheet. So the flow will trigger when the file is modified but it will not be able to identify the rows that were modified. You might want to create a column in the excel with the modified metadata so that you can keep a track of when a new row was modified or added to the sheet. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Re: When an excel file is modified extract rows

Mr. @yashag2255,

I'm building an automated flow that simply get the content of the dynamic Excel file when it's modified and copy it into a single file.

The issue is I'm failing when I list the rows from the modified file. I couldn't make it dynamic.

Re: When an excel file is modified extract rows

Hey @Malamri 

 

Can you share the screenshot of the flow in edit mode? Especially the input that you are passing in the compose step that has failed? Are you passing the table/ file names dynamically in the list rows action? If so, you will not get the column mapping in the dynamic content part and you will have to reference individual columns. 

 

Hope this Helps!

Re: When an excel file is modified extract rows

Hej i have a kinda similar question. 

 

So what i try to do and than what i already did:

 

I want when i register (submit) a candidate (future employee) thru MS Forms formular --> then i have the data thru a flow after every submission updated in Excel (share point) --> now i want extract just one data set. for example candidate 11 (which is in the 11 row of the excel spreedsheet) and that thru a button it automatically inserts the data from row 11 in my predifined word document template (which is a work contract) --> and ideally when it saves as a WORD and PDF in Share point --> and aftetwards i can send it thru a button to the candidate thru docusign or just as a pdf version as email.

 

 

till now I did the formular also it always automatically updates a new row in excel (saved in sharepoint) when i submit the form

 

Thank you in advance. I hope it is  understandable.
