Hi Team, @fraenK ,
Thanks always for solving our queries.
I was trying to use Excel as a Database in the power automate desktop application but using the open SQL connection could not make the connection string for my excel as database, anyone who had tried excel as a database can you please provide your expertise.
Another option is to read the excel file & then inside the loop condition add if condition to just read only the specific data but in the case when the file contents are very large it can take a huge time so if excel is the database can be a very efficient option.
Can anyone provide their expert idea so I can try excel as a database option?
Using Excel as database is of course a good idea and power automate desktop can handle it much better with SQL query enabled.
One of very common task is to split a big sheet (e.g. here Sheet1) into multiple small csv files according your conditionals defined in WHERE sentence. Beforehand, power automate desktop provides very user-friendly interfaces for you to easily build your SQL connection without any coding, then even with simple SQL sentence (10 minutes to learn the basis), you can do a lot.
Here is my flow, running very fast. Cheers.
