Hello everybody

 

Can someone tell me where can I search the best way to copy multiple data from excel to any existing sharepoint list(4k+ data)?

I'm a begginer in PowerAutomate and I want to understand how I can simplify this kind of work

Now used a flow as below

1. Create a Scheduled flow

2. Inside it to to read the excel file, used the List Rows Present in Table action from Excel (Online) Business connector. [ here i had stored the excel file in one drive, with a table name  Table1.]

Excel data is as below

3. Now used the apply for each action to loop through each row of the excel , iterating through values variables.

 

Inside it used the create item in sharepoint action
