Happy new year and hope you had a great break
Could you please advise how to do the below tasks with Power Automate /desktop? Have tried lots but no luck with it
We have 2 spreadsheets, Spreadsheet-A and Spreadsheet-B, Power BI will connect and read data from spreadsheet-A, every day, we export data from website and generate it as spreadsheet B (by power automate desktop), then we will compare data (by ID) and update spreadsheet-A with the below conditions
Since it will be a daily task, not sure how to do it with power automate desktop/power automate if it is possible to do it with Power BI, please let me know thanks
After having a look into your requirement, from my point of view, it should be done by using PAD. So just give you bold advise below.
Hope it helps.
Please mark it answered if you are satisfied.
I apologize. I’m on my phone, so I may be shooting some from the hip on some syntax here. I don’t know Power BI, but I’ll give you the Excel answer and the logic will be the same:
I fill very strange if you use PBI, it is a very easy outcome you can get from Power Query.
Loading A and B into PQ, Merage B with A (Full Outer) as B has more rows of data.
With 2 if then else you can get what you need.
Then use UI flow to refresh this PQ model once you update A and B.
I load the file directly from excel file.
You could load them from 2 different folder. Folder A and B. Once updated, clear the file in A and B, then save the newest file into A for next time.
Below pics are the basic steps in Excel Power Query. I think the guy who loading data into PBI must understand it.
