Using data from excel to add a row to a SharePoint list

Hi.

 

I've being given a requirement where a user wants have a excel file acting as a template. The file will be a table, and have the same columns as the SharePoint list.

 

The user wants to input this excel file into Power Apps, where the app will take the excel rows data, and create a new row in the SharePoint list. 

 

I imagine, if it was possible, it'll be excel file -> data goes into a form -> the form submits the data -> new row in the SPL. 

 

I was also considering a flow to do this. 

 

Thank you in advance.

If the Excel spreadsheet will be used to perform data entry into a SharePoint list I would suggest you use Flow instead.  A Flow can be built to import the data directly into SharePoint with no need to build a PowerApp.  I suggest you post this question in the Power Automate Community instead.
