Allow Connection to Excel Files stored within SharePoint Librarys

Hi,

 

I have found it is not possible to connect PowerApps to Excel Sheets stored in SharePoint Document Librarys., I guess I am not alone in having Excel Sheets stored in this way - and wanting to add a mobile layer to allow end users to update more easily.

As Power apps already supports Excel Sheets stored in One Drive for Business and access to SharePont lists, I would guess (with no knowledge!) that this would be easy to add?

Hi @Andrii 

The link you included says there "is" a solution but there is actually nothing there. More-over it talks about PowerBI which differs from PowerApps. What we have been looking for, for a long time, is connecting from PowerApps to Excel, with the Excel file stored in SharePoint. One can connect to an Excel file stored on a "traditional server/PC" but that would not be a cloud solution and is not practical for several reasons.

Any updates on this planned feature please?

This feature must be implemented in short term because customers have to pay twice (for two different Microsoft products: Microsoft Power Automate and Power Apps) due to Power Apps missing basic features.

My Power App works fine with Excel Online (OneDrive).

Need to use an Excel Online (Business) connector, so that I can host the Excel file somewhere other than my personal corporate OneDrive space.

Why is that connector only available for Flow/Automate and not PowerApps?

How can you justify it being under Planned for more than 3 years. Did Satya Nadella said No?
