Hi@Art_Ratta,

Based on the issue that you mentioned, do you want to export the collection to excel or CSV and save this on the local?

Could you please share a bit more about the scenario?

Currently, I am afraid that there is no way to achieve this directly in PowerApps. As I know, we could save the file into a local file with the SaveData function or Export control, but the saved file format is restricted to only be available within PowerApps.

On the other hand, even if you can save the collection into an Excel CSV file through Microsoft Flow integration, there is no way to display/load the data into PowerApps directly.

Here is a similar idea you can vote for:

As an alternative solution, you could check the following video to see if it works for you.

Hi @Art_Ratta - have a look at Export to Excel PCF control by @yashag2255.

 

However, if your data source is SharePoint list, you could create a flow to export csv/excel file.

 

Thanks

Answer : yes need export to local drive and format file (csv or xlsx if possible)

Assume : I have 2 Gallery 

               Gallery1 : filter data form collection
               Gallery2 : Blank Gallery
Scenario 
1. Export data from Gallery1 after filter and save to local drive.

2. Import same CSV file to collection and filter display on Gallery2.

it's working.

How did you do it ?
