Convert pipe-delimited compose output to .xlsx table

Hi All,

 

I have the following example table as an output of a compose function (pipe-delimited text), is there a way to add this to a .xlsx table (I have created a template table) so I can use the same flow to send an email for each row (using the get row function)

 

  [s_r.gif] 20| A |> This is sample text              | App|>                  | E| 01.01.2021| 15.02.2021|          | AB32|>
  [s_h.gif] 2| A | More sample text                 | App|                     | F| 04.02.2020| 04.06.2020|>        | BV32|
  [s_g.gif] 96| A |> Even more sample text    | App|>                  | G| 15.03.2020| 24.06.2021|          | JG43|>

You can add rows to excel table and get rows using onedrive or sharepoint connectors. See this youtube video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbYGFIo0WGc&t=182s

Also if your goal is to add rows to excel simply as a temporary storage to then retrieve the rows from excel and send an email, you should avoid doing that. You can just loop through the compose output right in the flow using "Apply for each" action.

Hope that helped.

Thanks @neerajsu, that's really interesting, i'm fairly new to Power Automate, could you guide me through using 'apply to each' to send emails for each row in the table I posted please? For example, if the last column is an ID, and I want to concatenate it with '@example.com' and send an email, how do I do this directly following the compose action? Thanks again!
