How to copy a value from a table in excel file A and paste into an excel form in excel file B?

Hi there,

I'm a beginner user of Power Automate. I'm trying to automate filling up an excel form. The output will be multiple forms filled up. For input, I created a simple table eg:

NoRequestorRequest dateAmount requested
1Annie1/6/20211000
2James5/6/20214000
3Tom10/6/20215000

The excel form look like the following:

Requestor 
Request date 
Amount requested 

And for the aesthetic look, the form has lots of fields being merged.

 

I'm not sure how to extract the value from the table in excel file A and paste the value into form excel file B. The form has multiple tabs as well that are not to be used for this activity.

Appreciate your help on this.

 

Thanks.

 

Regards,

Sigrid

Hi @spsn,

 

to extract the value from the table in excel file A :  Use List rows function in power automate.

and paste the value into form excel file B.:  Use the get row function with specific filter

 

compare both the table in a condition and update the table with the help of Update table function

 

hope so this helps.
