Flow for Merge Excel files

I created Microsoft Form for collection of Excel files in a specific template from my team members on daily basis. I need to combine all received files in a particular day in a single master Excel file (contains progress of past days) which will be forwarded to my manager.

 

Table format for template and master file is below.

 

DateTeam Member NameProgress
6/7/2020Mr. ABC20%

 

I tried to create flow but couldn't find any action which dynamically reads new received file and copies data to master file. If anyone of you knows any solution or other workaround do let me know please.

Hello @Worker66 ,

 

You can perform following steps to merge your daily excel files.

 

1) create one file in one drive that is your master file 

2) create action to read attachments from email . (You can apply filter conditions for reading specific emails)

 

3) update one drive file with content you read from previous step.

Hi @mlam ,

 

Here is what it looks like. You might have tweak that into your needs but basically its upload file to oneDrive , read that file from oneDrive and update content to master file in oneDrive.
