Hi @Alice23 ,

 

Excel template is not supported to connect to Power Apps. You will need to use a Word template if you want to generate files based on the collection and export functionality. Please refer to below thread:

But if you really need to use the Excel template only, you will have to:

1\ Format the excel workbook as a table;

 

2\ Use Power Automate to create new file, copy file content and populate the new created file with the item in the collection.

Hope this helps.
