Exporting data from an existing PowerApp to excel

Hi All,

 

Apologies as I'm still quite new to PowerApps,

 

I've created a service report app, I currently send all of the values via the sendemail function, what I now need to do though is also export these to a currently nonexistant excel file.

Can anyone offer the best way to do this?

 

Thank you

Re: Exporting data from an existing PowerApp to excel

Hi @Ashers82 ,

 

So far you cannot create excel files in PowerApps directly. If you want to add data to excel file, then you need to first create the excel and format as a table. Then upload the file to cloud service like OneDrive, connect the table to PowerApps and add data via SubmitForm or Patch function.

 

Please refer to below documentation about how to create a canvas app from scratch based on Excel data
