Excel loaded by Oracle Query data

Hi,

 

I have an Excel file at On Drive which is loaded by some "oracle query - simple select" and it is updating every time when it is opened.

The data are formatted as table and has no formula.

I can connect it into PowerApps, but after setup and run the app, it creates a new column called "PowerApps" in the excel file and the query stop to work. This way the table will not be updated as I want.

 

Is there a solution for that? Or there is no support for excel file with data coming from some query?

 

Thanks in advanced,

 

Herbert

Re: Excel loaded by Oracle Query data

Hi @herbertp ,

Firstly, the new column called "PowerApps" is  regardless of this issue.

When you connect to your Excel table from PowerApps, it will create a column called _PowerAppsId_, with a unique ID for each row of your Excel table. This is genereated automatically by default.

Secondly, if your Excel data includes a calculated column, you can't use it to build an app, and you can’t add that data to an existing app.

Oracle query is one kind of calculation.

So the data can not be used in PowerApps.

Here's a doc about Excel limit in PowerApps for your reference:
