Save DataTable in a file

Hi all,

I'm trying to save in pdf or excel a DataTable on which I can set some filters. My purpose is to visualize this document and print it from acrobat or excel. Is there a way to do that? Can I save it locally or not? How can I display it? could you give me some example? I tried collect but it doesn't accept DataTable type.

Thanks in advance

Re: Save DataTable in a file

There is no way to "save" your data locally in a format such as you desire.  

You will need to look at using Flow to do that work.

You can collect and filter and shape your information to be used in the final "document", and then pass that to Flow to do the work.

Hi @Mh2,

 

You can import static data of local excel file to PowerApps but you cannot create local excel file from PowerApps.

 

Printing is still not available so far. I have found below 2 ideas submitted and the status is still under review.
