Write Variable in dynamic column

Hi community,

 

I want to write the variables "First name" and "Last name" into an Excel file. I want Power Automate Desktop to find out for itself in which column the "First name" should be written, depending on the column header in the target file. So that the column is dynamic and the variable is written in, for example, column 1 or whatever.

Has anyone experience in a similar case ? Or even a solution?

To make it "dynamic", you'll need to read the Excel file first to get the headers and their column numbers.

"Write to Excel worksheet" only works with column number or letter.

Cloud flows handles Excel files much better.
