Hi luuminhvuong93,


Are you trying to work with PowerApps? I believe what you see is an Microsoft office issue, and needs to be looked up in the Microsoft office support portal -

Please let me know if this is a powerapps issue and I would be happy to help you.

My data is collected from PowerApps,

But maybe I am at a wrong place.


Anyway is there other workaround that can allow exporting the data to excel ?

You can use flow to do this.


There's a preexisting template you can use which once a week exports the content of a sharepoint list into an Excel .csv


If you want it to run on demand rather than weekly, change the trigger from recurrence to a button.

thank you for suggesting, Actually I did try this one @JohnFairhall

But the FONT is not working (Im using Vietnamese)

Also, too many unnecessary column that I dont need

Once you have the exported CSV file do not open it. Instead, Open up Excel, go to the Data tab and choose 'From Text/CSV'. Ensure UTF-8 is used.

Thanks @JohnFairhall

However I downloaded the created csv ffrom onedrive. Then I Open excel, choosed from Text in data.

I also choose UTF 8.

font is stil broken 😞

Is it a fresh version of the CSV you are trying to import? If its the same one that you originally tried to open it maybe saved with the incorrect coding. Try creating the CSV again from fresh and then importing from text. If that doesn't work then sorry, I'm out of idea but hopefully, someone else can help. Good luck.

@JohnFairhall Thanks for your help,

ACtually It was my mistake. I click and downloaded the file from Excel online into xlsx format

I did it successfully,

The question now though is how to allow export data only input by the current user of the PowerApps.

Hi @luuminhvuong93,


Based on what I know, there is no option available in PowerApps to allow exporting data into Excel, or into SharePoint list.

You could take use of user() function to filter out the table loaded in PowerApps.

If here you would like to export filtered items from SharePoint list to Excel, then you may take a try with the Export to Excel feature in SharePoint, which allows to export the filtered View from SharePoint list:

Export to Excel from SharePoint  (Edited, it seems you have issue using this feature)


Or you may take a try with some powershell scripts.
