Convert a CSV file to Excel format using Microsoft flow



It would have been very helpful. if there was a way to convert a CSV format file to Excel format. As, currently to manage or play with excel data in flow is very easy. So, if I could convert a CSV file to Excel then, the client's requirements could be easily achieved.


Looking forward for quick and positive response.


Thank you.

Yes, it would be great to use CSV in flows.

Would love to see this functionality. To covert a .csv file to an .xlsx file.

Really appreciate if we can have this functionality.

I could use XML to XLSX conversion. 

It would be nice if Power Automate could convert a broader range of file types used in Office applications.



Creating Excel workbook from Flow would help in addressing customer requirements. Hope to see this capability soon.

Could you share how you convert XML to XLSX?

you would think this should be fairly straight forward for MS to implement. It's a shame they have not done it since the request was 2018. 


Can only assume there is a financial reason behind it for them not to do so 😞

I would love to see this functionality implemented. I am currently able to achieve it by using a paid third-party connector, but it scrambles quite a bit of data and still leaves me having to manually manipulate the file that it creates. Native functionality within the app would be much more intuitive and probably produce a better end result than the square peg in a round hole I'm currently using.


For those curious, I am using Cloudmersive's connector. It can convert file content from csv to xlsx, but has quite a few limitations (such as file size) and often the file that it creates has numbers stored as text which requires us to manually fix it, so far from perfect.

Converting a XLS to a CSV would actually be more useful for me.   Especially since you can't export a CSV from the web version of Excel

Yes, that's a wonderful idea.
