Following up on the suggestion by @amitchandak (a Rock Star to the Microsoft PowerBI Community)  and others within the tread of this post is the suggestion to create a Community Forum Post in the appropriate Microsoft Power Automate Community Forums rather than one of the Microsoft Fabric Community Forums, where the folks are helpful and often reach and provide guidance from separate communities for inspiration
to the party with a question.

Hello @amitchandak :


These articles not points to a valid solution.  They doesn't work. The new file can't not be displayed by excel. I am looking for a valid action. If anybody knows please let us know. Thank you.
