Get multiple excel file properties within a sub-folder within a main folder

Hello everyone 

 

I have a folder A

 

within A there is A1, A2, A3

 

within each A1, A2, A3 there are numerous of excel files

 

I would like to get all of the names of these excel files to a list , then after that I will use a condition to delete it base on the prefix 

 

What would be the best way to do this ?

 

So far I have 

 

recurrence -> list folder  . The get file properties only does not return the files within the folder so I am stuck 

 

Thank you very much for everyone advice

Re: Get multiple excel file properties within a sub-folder within a main folder

 

Hi @janebraine ,

 

Unfortunately, there is currently any way to achieve this requirement. This is a known limitation. If you want to get files in subfolders such a function is supported, please consider submitting your suggestions in the ideas forum:

Power Automate Ideas - Power Platform Community

 

Or you can create many similar Flows to get the files in the subfolders separately. But this seems to be a very complicated process.

Hi @janebraine ,

 

Unfortunately, at present, we can only use Power Automate to get the files in the specified folder, but we cannot get the files in the subfolders. This is a known limitation.
