Updating sharepoint list with CSV Data

Hello,

 

Im trying to pull data from a CSV document that is exported from an Application called iAuditor. 

 

I'm wanting to create a flow that uses the CSV data to update the date on a sharepoint list. 

 

Is that possible? I wasnt able to pull the data from the CSV into power automate.

 

Thank you so much

Hi @timATbags,

 

There is no standard action could parse data get from CSV file, there are some workarounds you could do is extract the content of CSV file, then use expressions to process it, the process is more complicated but they could work. You could refer to this post first:

If you could provide an instance of the CSV table, we'll happy to help you with how to process it step by step.

@timATbags 

There are no actions/connectors that are included with Power Automate that allow you to read in a csv file.  There are a number of third party (i.e. you need to pay for them) connectors that do exactly what you want.  Plumsail, for example has a connector that I believe does this for you.

You can get this done through a number of steps without the need for a third party connector.  Here is a link to a blog post from @PieterVeenstra that should get you started.
