Update a file from an SQL table


I am very new to SQL, but am trying to utilize it more. I would like to use an SQL table to store some data from/for an app, but I would like to know if it is possible to, when a new item is created, or the SQL table is updated, update/create an item in another file (e.g. Excel or SharePoint list). Would I be able to use a Flow for that?

Hi @Nyk 


Yes. You can use the "When an item is created" trigger for both SharePoint and SQL connectors and then create the flow to further update/ create items on either of the data sources. Please share more details on the scenario that you are trying to build so that we can recommend an appropriate approach. 


Hope this Helps!
