Autoupdate excel by macro using powerapps

Spoiler
 

Hi!

Since Powerapps cant handle tables with formulas i made an macro in excel which copies the values in a table with formulas to another table as single values. I tried to set the macro to run when the excel file opens, closes, saves but nothing works. 
Somehow when the powerapp update the excel sheet the macro wont run. Any suggestions?

Hi @Tomjoh92,

 

Please close the Excel file session when doing data modification within PowerApps.

 

For working with Excel in PowerApps, please check:

OverView of excel connection in PowerApps

Copied from the Office support page (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/work-with-macros-in-excel-online-98784ad0-898c-43aa-a1da-4f...)

 

"Currently, you can't work with macros in Excel Online. But you can open a workbook that contains macros—you just won't see them. In Excel Online, you can make changes to its worksheets and save the workbook, and the macros will still be there to work with when you open it in the Excel desktop application."
