Microsoft Flow & Microsoft Access

Hello All,

 

Is it possible to create a flow that will push a SharePoint list data to an Access database that is stored in SharePoint?

There is no connector for Microsoft Access, so the direct answer to your question is no.  That said, you can always create a linked table in Access that points to a SharePoint list.  That will allow you to use the SharePoint list data inside of Access without the need to push the data.  If Access is configured properly, the linked tables will be updated when the Access database is opened.

Thanks @ScottShearer !  

I should have provided more details.

 

We have a tableau team that link to SharePoint but they are having issues querying a SharePoint list to visualize data.  They mentioned that if they could get the data into Microsoft Access, it would be much easier to query.  Also, there are 3 SharePoint lists and it would be easier to create table joins and complex queries in Access.  Since there is no connector, no it is.

Hi @isogunro1 ,

 

Unfortunately, MS Flow does not currently support such a connector. If you want such a connection to be supported by MS Flow, please consider voting for similar ideas:

Also, you could post your idea in the Flow Ideas forum, so it might be considered for future releases.
