thanks for your suggestion. For sharepoint data source, can I use something like this on my Gallery items?
!IsBlank(LookUp(EmailList, Lower(useremailcolumn) = Lower(userinfo)).useremailcolumn)
As suggested, moving to SharePoint will give you more options in order to gather the information you need. Excel needs a lot of pulling apart in order to deal with large lists (i.e. multiple tables in order to have large lists).
As for your formula for the Items - no, that will not work. The Items property will be expecting a table of records. Lookup produces only one record. So, your Items property formula would be more like this:
Filter(EmailList, Lower(useremailcolumn) = Lower(User().Email) )
This will give you all records that match the criteria of the current user's email that are found in the datasource.
Actually, that is not too challenging. I would "clean" the Excel file with only the information columns you need in your SharePoint list. Then create a custom list in SharePoint by using the Import Excel file. You can specify that file and table and it will do the work for you.
It's a one time deal (you can't re-import again to that list) so get it right...try to do it to a list you can discard first to see what the results are.
Well I am getting below error when I try to import
the specified spread sheet is not a valid spread sheet or contains no data to import. is it because of the content which might have rules somewhere? This content was exported from one of the tool and did a copy paste to new excel file with the column that I need. But each column as an apostraphee tagged to it. I am not able to remove that, not sure what kind of rule it is.
Yes, so always good to start with a test list...
First make sure your Excel file is exactly how you want it. This means that date columns should be formatted as date columns, number columns should be numbers, text should be text, etc.
Make sure all the column header names are exactly as you want them to be - I would remove any spaces from the names at this time. You can add them back if needed once in SharePoint.
Make sure you have a Table defined for the entire table of data in your file (select all the columns and all the rows and do an "Insert Table")
Then try your import again.
I did formatted as yabel and removed all the numbers form the content as well "/" "," fromt he content. Still I am getting same error.
So i used format as tabel and added a tabelname instead of instert a tabel. is it wrong?
Yes, format as table will produce a table as well. This is defintiely what you need. Although you can actually select a range during the import, it is by far better to select an existing table in your Excel file. Just make sure the table is inclusive of everything you need.
