Re: Adding row dynamically to the excel online

HI @Manimozhi0890 


If you are trying to add a row in the Excel, add it as a datasource and then you can use the Patch formula on the "OnSelect" property of your button control:
Patch(DataSourceName,Defaults(DataSourceName),{Field1: "Value1",Field2:"Value2"})
For more information about Patch, please refer:
If this differs from what you are looking for, please share more details about the scenario, maybe through some snippets/screenshots.
Hope this Helps!

Re: Adding row dynamically to the excel online

Hi @Manimozhi0890 

PowerApps doesn't fully support the 'Excel Business Online' connector.

For Excel documents that are stored in OneDrive for Business/SharePoint, the workaround is to use Microsoft Flow.

If it isn't possible for you to use Flow and it's a requirement for you to use Excel, the only other option is to save your Excel file to a personal OneDrive account/Google drive/Dropbox account, connect to the data source in PowerApps, and to use the Patch function as @yashag2255 describes.

You can find a bit more detail in the thread here...
