Can a user upload an Excel-File into the App while using it?

Hello everybody,

 

i have a question regarding the following topic: About 10 variables should be set/assigned by the user for further calculation. It would be great if there is a possibility that the user fills an excel table (on his PC) with the values of the variables and then uploads the file into the PowerApp while using it. Is there a possibility to do so?

 

Or has anybody an alternative?

 

Best wishes

Yes, you can do this and have it work well with the app. For best results, set it up like this:

  • The Excel file has a Table that contains your values
  • The Excel file is connected to your app as a data source prior to runtime

Then your app can read/write to that Excel file using Form controls or Patch() as you need.

 

Hope that helps,

Bryan
