Excel table columns updates copy to rows

Hi All, 


Thanks for reading 🙂


I have a table in an Excel spreadsheet with three columns Column A, B, C that gets a new row added with updated numbers every day.


When the new row in the table is created, I need the new numbers to automatically update a cell corresponding to a single value on the same sheet, outside the table. So, I need the new new data in column A to go to cell A1, the new data from Column B go to cell B1 and the new data from Column C to go to C1. The formatting of the cell must not be changed.


Any ideas on how to achieve this with PA?


Thanks heaps guys 🙂

I'm pretty sure that you can only get and manipulate data from tables in excel with power automate. So you would need to set up another table and use it for your new data.

You could then update the first row in the new table with the data from the new row created that triggered the action. You'll first have to go through the list of rows from the new table to get the data to then change it (this will only work if you keep it at one row, but that seems like what you are doing). Like this:

List rows in table -> Apply to each (rows you just got should only be one though) -> Update a row (new table, value from list rows in table as the key value pair) with the information from the trigger you created.
