Powerapps create search with excel file containing 50k rows

Good day all,

 

I am currently having an issue where i want to create a powerapps that searches an excel file with 50k items. I have tried using onedrive for business but i get an error message that the file is too large. I have also tried importing it to a SharePoint list but to no avail. I will gladly appreciate any help I can get on this.

Hi @llisbey 

 

You can import the data to SP List through App.

 

Site content > Apps > Search for Import 

 

Go through delegation when filtering - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/delegation-overview

 

 

Thanks.

Hi @llisbey ,

 

Although excel is a simple data source to use, it isn't suitable for large data sets. Personally, best approach is to use different data source like SQL or CDS or SharePoint.

What you need to do on your SP Import error is to add your SharePoint Site URL to the trusted site in IE Security Settings:

  1. Open the SharePoint site in Internet Explorer. From the Menu > Click on Tools > Select Internet Options.
  2. Click on Security tab > Trusted Sites > Click on Sites Button.
  3. Add the current SharePoint site URL.
  4. Try again to import the Excel file that should be now imported properly.

I'm pretty sure you can now upload files of up to 10GB in size for SharePoint Team Sites, OneDrive for Business and Office 365 Groups.

Re: Powerapps create search with excel file containing 50k rows

Thank you all for the help, I had no luck with that option. However, after doing some research it seems the CDM is the best option for me. Can anyone guide me on how to import large data from excel to CDM please.
