Overwriting a .xlsx file when a new file is sent as an email attachment

I have scheduled reports emailed to me and I would like to route then to a specific folder in my OneDrive and overwrite the previous report and if possible trigger a powerBi report to refresh

Re: Overwriting a .xlsx file when a new file is sent as an email attachment

Hi @Abehrmann,


If the coming attachment has the same name with the previous report, then using the action Create file will replace the previous file automatically. We could check it at version history of the file.


Please take the following screenshot for a reference.





However, currently it is not possible to trigger a Power BI report using Flow, I have seen a similar request on Flow Ideas Forum, please vote it at here:



Best regards,
