Connecting to large table data of excel online

Hello everyone,

 

I know there is a maximum limit of 2000 rows that I can filter it but in my case, I have a large table sitting on an excel online. I'd like to connect that data and apply certain filters. However, it has 50,000 rows at least and I'm afraid I'm not able to search the desireable record from the table in power app gallery list. 

 

Would appreciate if someone shows a better way to filter that much of record. Thank you

Re: Connecting to large table data of excel online

Hi @imaliasad ,

Yeah, you are right. The Excel table online is not a delegable data source, so you could not delegate the data process to your Excel table from your app, instead, you could only process data locally in your app. Currently, you could only process 2000 records at most locally within canvas app.

 

As an alternative solution, you could consider create a custom Entity in your CDS, and add same data columns as your Excel table into your CDS Entity, then load data from your Excel file into this CDS Entity. After that, add the CDS Entity as data source in your app instead of the original Excel table, then you could apply delegable filter formula to your CDS Entity.

 

In addition, if you added a Index type column in your Excel table to identify each row in your Excel table (add a index for each row in your Excel table. e.g. 1,2,3,4,5, ...., 1000, ... 50000), please also check and see if the solution mentioned in the following thread would help in your scenario:
