Export Data to Excel File

I am new to Flow.

I would like to know if Microsoft Flow can be incorporated into any steps mentioned below:


1). Have a button in my power app that can check if a csv file exits in a local directory

2). If file does exist then import the contents of that csv file into Power BI Desktop

3). Do some manipulation to the data in Power BI Desktop

4). Then have a button in my app that would output the contents from Power BI Desktop to an xlsx file and save that file in a local folder with naming convention of the file containing datetime stamp

5). Have a button in my app that would send this file to a predefined distribution list of receipients. 


Thank You.

Re: Export Data to Excel File

Hi @mp3909 ,

I think MS flow can achieve the first three steps currently.

You can transfer the csv file name from App to flow.

Then use the condition if the file is in the local directory.

Then add data to the PowerBI.

I have made a flow for your scenario, please check it for a reference.
