How to Filter Large Excel Data to work within Powerapps limit of 500 rows

I have a pretty large spreadsheet (18000 rows) that get updated once a month.

It has only 4 columns:  Product, Region, SubRegion, SalesPerson.


Product is a fixed list.  (<100)

Region is a fixed list (<25)

SubRegion is dependent on Region.  (<100 for a given region)

     Subregions could be states based on Region "US", or subregions could be countries based on Region "Europe".

Subregions will be fixed for each region.

SalesPerson is just a user who could be a lookup to a Office 365 user.


SalesPerson column is the column that could change per month, rest of the Excel data is constant.


Given this setup, can I create a PowerApp which can filter this list by Product and Region, and only display SubRegions and the corresponding SalesPerson? This is a readonly app.  Assuming I can filter on two columns at once( product = "x" and Region = "y"), I can always guarantee that the result will return <100 rows.


I can not import the data to Azure, nor can I import to a SQL database, nor access the original source.  Really trying to make this a tool to be managed by an InfoWorker. 


Any ideas on how to achieve this within Powerapps?  Is it possible to filter a large Excel file down to a managable set of data?


I am really trying to show the power of multiple platform (android, ios, Windows) apps - but frustrated with this 500 row limit.
