Export Data out of a CSV sheet into one excel table

Dear folks,

 

I have an issue. I receive one time a day a CSV sheet with several rows via email. The structure of this sheet is always the same. It is an update of loaded shipments with notes of destination, pallet qty and weight. 

 

I would like to collect this data into one excel sheet over flow. Is this possible ? If yes, how ?

 

Thanks for your help in advance.

Re: Export Data out of a CSV sheet into one excel table

Hi @MJKarben,

 

I'm afraid that this cannot be achieved so far, you will have to manually copy the csv sheet from email content to excel file. Since you cannot extract the columns from email body in flow. Email body will be considerd as a whole dynamic content.

 

But if you think that this is important feature for you, you could add an idea in below forum so that others who have the same request could vote on it:

Hi!

 

You can use Parse CSV action from Plumsail Documents connector. It allows you to convert CSV into an array and variables for each column. Please read this article demonstrating how it works.

 

In your case you will need to parse your CSV into an array using this action, then you can use Create XLSX document from template action from the same connector to generate an XLSX file. Please read this article describing how to work with XLSX templates.

Hi Mona,

 

sorry for my bad explanation. The CSV Sheet is send as an attachement on the email. It is not include in the email body. 

But it won't make the situation better right? 

 

Thanks

MJ

Hi there,

 

Just for future reference, Parserr, a conenctor available on Microsoft Flow extracts text from CSV, emails, PDF, Excel etc. You would simply forward the email to Parserr and setup the rules required to extract the text you require out of the CSV.

 

Let me know if I can help at all

Currently the only way seems to be with parserr which was overkill and expensive for my particular project.

Hi,

 

Thanks, I am also having the same issue nor new .xlsx or .csv is working for me. 
This is a key feature especially with so many companies still running with XLS in their DW. 

Best,
J.
