up date excel file when powerquery table is updated

Hi,

I have an excel file on a sharepoint site, powerquery run that file.  I need to add a column where I can write a comment on a raw and when the file with powerquery is updated with news raws, the comment follows the original raw.

For example : Powerquery-Flaw.JPG  the column 1 is the column for the comment, ID1 should to be on the same raw that ID1 of the ID column.

To do this, I have a excel file"B" with the same column that the original file "A" with the powerquery, and the column "comment". I would like, when the file "A" is updated, the new raw are copied and inserted in the file B.

 

Thank for your help

Re: up date excel file when powerquery table is updated

 

Hi @ChantalSIL ,

 

Unfortunately, MS Flow currently does not have a suitable trigger to monitor whether new rows are added in the Excel table.

Even if we can use When a file is created or modified as a trigger to monitor whether the Excel file is updated, but when other rows are changed, Flow will also trigger, so there is no possibility to get the data of the newly added row.

Please check these similar ideas:

Re: up date excel file when powerquery table is updated

ok, it's impossible to do it, thank you for your helps anayway.

I look for another way to get what I want. There is a flow "update de list sharepoint when a form is sumited", It works fine, It's what I was looking for at the beginning
