"Export to Excel" from SharePoint list

Hello everyone,

 

I created a Sharepoint list which is filled everyday with new Items. My question is: 

 

Is it possible to synchronise an Excel (on my OneDrive?), everytime a new item is created in SharePoint?

 

I know that I can "Export to excel" from sharepoint to get a ponctual Excel, but is it possible to synchronise automaticly this Excel?

 

Thanks in advance for the help!

It is possible, but only if the SharePoint list is updated every 12 minutes (which is generally impossible to know). Excel has file lockout issues, which are 12 minutes in length on OneDrive. File lockouts are the main reason most Flow experts don't recommend Excel if at all possible. The Excel connectors have many Known issues and limitations. I'd recommend moving this workload to a SharePoint List if possible. Or, you could run a Flow on a schedule and have the synchronization happen every hour, day, etc.
