I am new to flow and trying to figure it out. I have 2 excel files stored in a SP library. I want to grab rows from one file and update those that don't exist in the other file. I did create named tables in each excel file but they are not SP lists. Having a hard time with this... any help will be greatly appreciated.
Have a look under the excel actions you should find what you need there.
You are going to have to get all rows from the first file and then check the second file and if it does not exist use the create row action
Hi @MelGen ,
You need to create a key column (not null and have a unique value) in the two Excel tables to correspond to the rows in the two tables, in order to update the table.
Hope it helps.
Hi, I got the flow to run successfully. However, I do not see the new rows in the table2 that I was trying to update. Any ideas on how to I can determine where they went? I tried to paste in the screen shot of the flow but its not letting me copy it in here.
There isn't an template flow for updating one excel file into another excel file in SharePoint that I can find.
Please provide more details with screenshoot to describe your problem.
I apologize for not responding. I was away and there wasn't any internet. The following are the screen shots of the flow I built based on your suggestions. As it indicates it was successfully but the excel file (file2) was not updated with the rows from file 1 that didn't exist in file 2. I'm not sure how to troubleshoot this. Any help with be appreciated....
