Write to excel stored in sharepoint

Hello there

 

i am fairlynew to Powerapps. I am trying to created an app which is collecting and writing Data to an excel Table.

The excelsheet is stored in a sharepoint folder. I was succesfull in integrating Data from said excelsheet but i can't write data to it. So far i have seen some tutorials but there the allways use Onedrive as datasource. Is it at all possible to write to an excelfile which is stored in a sharepoint folder?

 

Thanks

Re: Write to excel stored in sharepoint

Hi @CarlSobotzki,

Do you want to patch data into your Excel table which stored within your SP library?

If you want to patch data into your Excel table which stored within your SP library, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

Currently, within PowerApps, we could only get the File name, created time, modified time, creator, etc properties (file itself properties) of a file stored within a SP library, we could not retrieve file content of a file stored in a SP library.

Patching data into Excel table which stored within SP library is not supported within PowerApps. If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Ideas/idb-p/PowerAppsIdeas

 

As an alternative solution, please store your Excel table within a OneDrive for Business folder (OneDrive folder, Dropbox, etc), then patch data into the Excel table from your app.

 

Best regards,

Re: Write to excel stored in sharepoint

Hello @CarlSobotzki,

I've never tried writing direclty to an Excel file in a SharePoint directly, but it seems like it would be possible to store all the data in an Excel file and then copy it to the SharePoint using Flow. Please see this page for more details: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/Flow-to-Save-As-Excel-File-on-SharePoint-to-Folde...
