Create Excel Table

Hi,

 

I have an excel report exported from a system to a sharepoint location.

The system exports the report as excel columns (with headers) and records per row. There are no extra rows/columns or charts/images. As it's an export from a system it is not saved as a Table in excel therefore I can not use the 'get rows' action from a flow.

Does anyone know how I can automatically convert the data in the exported file into an excel table so the values can then be used in flows?

My goal is to add new values in the table to a sharepoint list, if theres a better way to do this then I'm all ears.

 

Thanks,
Sam

Hi SamPo,

 

I am afraid that currently Flow is not able to format Excel file to table.
