Hi Mates,

What is your idea on below requirement.

1. Screen1: When users click on button, a window(Screen2: or form) should open for select excel file, means like browse and select file.

2. Once selected excel file, return to Screen1, here another button for validate the selected excel file data(loop all the rows and check if correct format or not).

If this is possible it would have to be done in Microsoft Flow.  I'll provide a link to that community.
