Generating excel file from the data source selected

Hi 

I am trying to create a app where on click of a button a report will be generated.

And will be downloaded to local pc.

I know that we can use import data function here.But the file downloaded has xml format of data.

Is there any way in which i can directly generate a excel which can be downloaded to local pc.

 

Thanks

Re: Generating excel file from the data source cibbected

Hi @abd3127,

 

In PowerApps available connector list, there is no such data source called cibbected. Would you explain what did you mean in your title? Also, in PowerApps, the only way to download files to local is using the Download function, which downloads a file from the web to the local device. You cannot create excel files inside PowerApps. You can only connect to exsiting Excel table and manage records inside the excel file in PowerApps.

 

If you want to be able to create files inside PowerApps, please consider to post this idea in the PowerApps Ideas forum:
