I am trying to build an automated update of a CSV file placed in Google Drive.
The update should be based upon an updated Google Sheet.
Due to limitations in Google Sheet I am trying to "Get rows" and then "Update files in Google Drive" - however only one of the rows from the Google Sheet is visible in the CSV-file once complete.
Any possibility to have all rows from the Gsheet transferred?
Or perhaps another way to obtain same goal?
Hi @mrpilot ,
Does your Google Sheet have same data structure as your Google Driver CSV file?
Do you want to use the "Update file" action of Google Drive connector to update your CSV file with records from your Google Sheet?
If you want to use the "Update file" action of Google Drive connector to update your CSV file with records from your Google Sheet, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Power Automate currently.
The "File content" field of the "Update file" action of Google Drive connector is required to provide a binary data. But the "Get rows" action of Google Sheet is used to retrieve all records from a sheet rather than a file content.
If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please consider submit an idea to Power Automate Ideas Forum:
As an alternative solution, you could consider store the Excel sheet (whose data has been formatted as Table) within your specific OneDrive folder, then configure your flow as below:
Thanks @v-xida-msft ,
I tried your suggested solution. However CSV file came out corrupted.
I couldnt get the source file (in "condition") come up as automatic suggestion (dynamic output) - then I entered the filename manually. When testing the flow it turned out the condition came out FALSE - then I entered the update google file in the "NO" option (instead of "Yes" as suggested by you) - which sort of worked - but the result as mentioned earlier is garbled.
Not sure if above is understandable?
