Re: Use excel data for MS forms options

Hi @sarekchan,

 

If you are using local excel file, to make it work with PowerApps, please first format the data as a Table, and then upload the Excel to the available data sources for PowerApps, like OneDrive/OneDrive for Business/DropBox .etc. Then you could start to learn from letting PowerApps create an auto-genertated app by selecting Create an app > Your data source(OneDrive for example) > Select the folder > the Excel file > the table name.

If your Excel form is formatted as a table, you could create an application from that table and see if your options are imported automatically (see File/New/Start with your data section).
