Re: Functionality to upload file from powerapps to OneDrive/SharePoint Doc Library and read its cont

Hi @karishma,

Do you want to upload a Excel file to OneDrive/SharePoint Document library using PowerApps?

 

If you want to upload a Excel file to OneDrive/SharePoint Document library using PowerApps, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Ideas/idb-p/PowerAppsIdeas

 

I agree with @PeteMc's thought almost, currently, we could only upload a file as a attachment of a SP list item using Attachments control within PowerApps. Please check the following for more details:

More details about Attachments control within PowerApps, please check the following article:

Attachments control

 

As an alternative solution, you could consider take a try to achieve your needs using Microsoft Flow. I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:1.JPG

 

More details about Microsoft Flow, please check the following article:

Best regards,

The only way to upload excel files is via a SharePoint attachment, you could then have a flow or sharepoint workflow to manage the file from there: https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/add-attachments-to-sharepoint-lists/

 

There also has been an annoucement for Powerapps to browse, upload, view and manage files in sharepoint, however it is not set for release until Jan 2019: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/business-applications-release-notes/October18/powerapps/powerapps-m...

How would the UI look when it is only Flow? Smiley Sad 

I am looking to allow users to upload a bunch of files add some metadata for all of them, then let Flow put the files where they should go with the metadata.

Any Ideas?
