Create collection from Excel table


I can easily create a collection from an Excel table if there's just one column of data:

Collect (NewCollectionName , NameofTable)


But I need all columns and all records to be added to the new Collection.

Is there a way to do this?


Thanks in advance.

Re: Create collection from Excel table



It depends on how the table structure is defined with the Excel file.

Basically the Collect() function would hold the whole table data when the table name is specified.

For the function to work with table or collection, see:

AddColumns, DropColumns, RenameColumns, and ShowColumns functions in PowerApps
