When a form is submitted, create a new excel row with a unique ID that follows a naming convention and save the file with that ID

Hi,

 

First time positing. So I am new to Powerapps and Power Automate, I've looked through several tutorials that touch part of what I want to do but don't seem to mesh together. Hoping someone can help.

 

I want to create a flow so that when someone submits a Form (that I previously made and is linked into Teams) it will create a new Log entry in the Excel file I have that follows the naming convention we use, but I am having trouble having it detect the numbering sequence and then creating a new one. It is NDA[yy]-[###]

 

Additionally, I also want to generate a word document that incorporates the answer provided in the form and saves that document with the ID in the title... but that may be for another day. 

 

I've attached the type of sequence I want to follow and the flow I have so far.

 

TC

I noticed the words "I want to create a Flow"...

 

This sounds like a Power Automate question rather than a PowerApps question.  I suggest you post this in the Power Automate Community instead. You’ll get better response over there.
