To upload a document to SPO list seems tricky. Below thread might be useful to you.

Swetha, hello. I think Perumal is right and the solution is to use Flow.

Where is your file to be uploaded stored?  On C: or somewhere else?

Please let us know if you need more guidance.

Hey,

 

I am trying to build an app to upload a file to a Azure blob storage, and I have been able to upload a picture using the 'Add picture' control and Flow, but ideally I would like to upload a file.

The Flow part I have got it sorted, but I can't find a way to give the user the control to select the file, I can't see any control that allows you to select a file, like the 'Add picture' one.

 

I saw there is an idea about having one created, concluding that it doesn't exists at the moment, so I would like to ask you how did you got your users to select the file? What controls have you used?

 

Thanks

Re: File(Text or Document) upload control in powerapps

what file types can be imported to the collections? The tutorial file provided by MS worked for PriceList but how do I replicate that process.

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/create-update-collection

 

Or is there another way to let the user chose the data source to be imported? It says zip files?xml files? Also what about text files? or excel ?

yes MelindaK.

 

I am also facing the same problem. I cant choose other files other than Images.

I also have used Add Picture Control.

 

Please let me know if you find anything.

 

 

Thanks,
