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.

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!
