Upload data of Excel File to SQL table through powerapps

Hi All,

 

Here's my requirement - I get excel sheets from 4 vendors each month.  (4 different car leasing companies giving me details about my company's fleet resources)

 

I was thinking of creating a powerapp that allows users to directly upload these excel sheets to a sql table. I understand there is no direct way to do this. So, can I use sharepoint to upload each of these excel files and then run a job that takes the content of the sharepoint files and pushes them to a sql database? I'll have 4 tables for each of the vendors' data. And a 5th table that will hold the consolidated data. (Can run a stored proceudre for this). The goal is to create power bi reports for the fleet data, which is why I wanted to store all of our data onto a sql database. Right now, we have lots of distributed excel sheets.

 

Thanks a lot

All of your requirements can be accomplished using Microsoft Flow. In fact, you might not even need PowerApps at all. I suggest you research Flow and once you are ready to build you could ask any questions in the Flow Community.
