we have a report in Excel that is generated automatically and saved in OneDrive.
We'd like to create a Flow to automatically copy a range from the Excel file, with its formatting, and paste it as picture within a email body.
Currently this is done manually opening the file, copying and pasting as image...
Is there a way to achieve this?
Hi there. So I know this wasn't the original scope, but I wanted to share a possible alternative...
Rather than trying to automate a screen capture, perhaps consider pushing the report through a different method. Power BI, as an example, allows users to subscribe to reports and dashboards and get regular updates. Here's a link to that:
If your scope doesn't allow for that kind of flexibility, then maybe a UI Flow? Not sure...but my suggestion is to chase this upstream to see if you can change the reporting behavior a tiny bit to make it more accessible.
Keep us posted.

I doubt you can do this using flow.
Consider creating an Excel macro or add-in to do that.
