Working with Excel Cells instead of with Tables?

Hi there,


here's the scenario I am trying to automate:


  1. When the picture of a new receipt is found in a special folder on OneDrive
  2. Duplicate an expense report Excel Sheet that is saved on OneDrive
  3. Fill up the required cells (Date, ReasonForTheExpense and Amount)
  4. Export the file as a PDF
  5. Bundle it with the image of the receipt
  6. Email the bundle

The problem I currently have is the following: my Excel-sheet is pretty dumb, there is no Excel-Table to reference and add a row into. Is there a way to manipulate cells directly instead of rows with the Excel-Connector?

The Excel connectors all require that you use a table.  If you are using a table, you can insert a new row and populate the cells as you desire.


The Excel Online (Business) connector and the Excel Online (OneDrive) connectors both have actions that allow you to create tables and insert rows into tables.


Let me know if you need an example.

Hi Scott, thanks, but unfortunately I cannot modify the base file to add tables.
