Hi dears

 

Building a news app.

I have Excel data in One drive.

Which is more simpler and faster, Getting data from One drive or Share point. if It's sharepoint, should I keep it as file uploaded into share point or I need to have it as list in sharepoint.

 

Thanks

For SharePoint you have to convert your table to a list. Excel on one drive is simpler but less flexible.

Thank you dear

Did this mean, I need to upload my Excel files to share point site, then convert them to list to be connected to Power app? or is there any other more efficient way?

 

Thanks

 

 

Hi @Ralino 

In Excel do the following:

  1. Format the data as a table. ...
  2. Click on the Export button under the Design tab and select 'Export Table to SharePoint List'.
  3. Enter the URL to the SharePoint site where you want to import the Excel table.
