Converting between grid reference standards to enable better mapping

Hi I an trying to build an app that pulls in locations based on the UK Ordinance Survey grid reference system (OSGB) and plot them onto a map, sat Bing or Google, to use for location and direction, also to take the current location of the device and convert that into OSGB.

Whilst there are many webapps and Excel spreadsheets that will do this the process cannot currently be automated as Flow will not access VBA/Macro enabled Excel files (others have requested this functionality elsewhere) and the webapps cannot be connected to.

Is there any chance that this functionality could be added as a Flow conversion?

HI @pete2 


Interesting use-case, but I don't think Power Automate can help you with this, unfortunetly.


We can try to work to send the information to an API (you mentioned Maps) to plot that. Would this be a potential solution for you?
