Populate a new Excel file from each share point list item

When a new list item is added to a share point list; I want a new excel file to be populated with that SharePoint item contents.

So, each item will be in a separate Excel file stored in either one drive or SharePoint library. 

 

Is this possible at all?

 

Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

Re: Populate a new Excel file from each share point list item

Hi Warren,

 

I can't say this didn't answer my question. 

 

I wish there was a way better trigger. I'm glad Shane showed us "Ask in power apps" in his example. I wish there was a "When a new item is added to share point" as a trigger.

I actually have a form that adds a new SharePoint list item every time its is submitted.

This form also asks users upload files. I think they are currently being stored in the SharePoint app folder. I don't know create a column in share point list for a link of each file uploaded for every item.

 

When the above is accomplished, I finally want the contents of each item to be stored in an excel file (that I email to the respondent). Kinda like a tabulated copy of the SharePoint list. Shane's video does this to some extent.

  

I am working on it. See if you have some suggestions.
