Read excel table from outlook attachment

Hello, Is there a way to get data from mail attached excel without saving the attachment? I do try to save the file and then get the rows from it. It didn't work because the saved file (on onedrive or share point) become locked somehow. I can't even delete it for the next few hours.

Hi @dkostov ,

I am afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in Microsoft Flow currently.

You want get the data from  mail attached excel.

Currently, flow only support getting rows from an existing file.

It can't be achieved that When you create a new excel, and want to get rows from the Excel file in one flow.

There is a similar idea with your case, you can vote here:
