I get a .txt file dumped from an old legacy system report. Some of the lines of text translate into a "booking" records for an event. I want to load these to a SharePoint list, however, I have to do conversions to extract and format the field(column) data.
Additionally, there are a number of header rows in the file that I need to store data from to apply to the rows of "booking" data following the headers.
Column A( a string of text)
Category Label 1
Location Name Label 2
abcd fgh row2
translation via formula gives me column in excel
A B C D E F
Label1 Label2 Row 1 cde
Label1 Label2 Row 2 cd
The output is then imported row by row using Create Item mapping columns to list fields.
This is a simplification as I have some complex MID LEFT, IFs, ISERR and cross-dependencies on function results in other columns.
I loved to be able to do the data manipulation as Expressions and use Get Rows(excel) to read through the .txt file followed by Create Item(SharePoint) to write records to a list.
I know I'd probably need to use variables to store the Header data for use on each Booking level item but the conversion of the formula is my main challenge.
Is there a guide to converting Excel Formula into Expressions that I can refer to? Or can Excel functions be imported in some way?
