"When a file is modified" - Can I get what was modified/changed?



We have a spreadsheet on SharePoint that we are using to keep track of all our computers & IT equipment.

Every time an update or change is made on there, such as we get new laptops, our accountant needs to be notified so she can update it in her accounting software.

I am creating a flow that can automatically email the accountant when a change occurs.

I got a basic test flow working with OneDrive and "when a file is modified" -> "send an email v2", trying to change it to use SharePoint instead. 

Question: Is there a way in the email I can specify what was changed or updated on the excel? So the account knows what she is looking for.

I am not aware of any way to find out what cell or cells changed using Power Automate.  

However, Excel does have a track changes feature - all you need to do is to turn it on.

Here is a link with more info on track changes.
