Get Excel sheet from a folder that is just created

Hi all, I have a flow that is triggered when an item is created. Everyday, a new folder containing 1 Excel sheet and several other PDFs will be uploaded. I want to send an email with a HTML of the Excel sheet's table, which has the same exact columns for every new folder uploaded. 

 

This is my flow so far. The condition checks for IsFolder and I am stuck at trying to obtain the excel sheet to work with.

Re: Get Excel sheet from a folder that is just created

Hi @yws 

 

The current connector doesn't allow for dynamic paths, so you have to follow a different strategy. I wrote a post explaining how to do that:

You also have a template that you can import and can do the work for you. Just call it and get the excel information from the other site. Then you have the data you need to continue.

 

Can you please check it out and let me know if you have any questions?

 

If I have answered your question, please mark your post as Solved.
