Flow to create a copy of an Excel file.



The goal here is just to create a copy of an excel file at SharePoint using Power Automate: The Excel file has no tables. Mostly Text, number and dynamic formulas. (so tables built is dynamic)

Text is in Norwegian bet the option selcetd is automate and a flow I made. The flow is from the template library "Complete a custom action for the selected file".


The flow:

Is it possible to build a flow that copy the file. If yes, what is the trick?


Best regards

Hi @ProCloudNorAs ,


You could add a field to allow the user to specify the path where they would like to copy to when they select a file and run the flow.


You can also use the Copy File action and pass the field as the destination
