copy excel rows from one excel file to another excel file

Hi


I am looking to find a way when a user updates an excel spreadsheet row, that row is updated on an identical spreadsheet, both which are stored in different document libraries in SharePoint, the solutions I have found include the 'get rows' action which is no longer available. It is a pretty simple proof of concept, I did try creating a table but you cannot overlay a table with another table, it errors out.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Re: copy excel rows from one excel file to another excel file

Hi @surfer1978 ,

 

Where are the both files be saved in?

Microsoft flow could check if the excel file1 is modified, however it couldn't know which row is updated.

I suggest that you could create a flow to do the steps below:

1. The flow would trigger when the excel file1 is modified.

2. Get all rows from the another excel file2 table and delete all the rows.

3. Get all rows from the excel file1 table, and create all the rows in the excel file2 table.

 

And if you save the file in the onedrive for business, the flow should as below:
