How to export slicer selection name as a (.csv) using Power Automate?

I was able to send filtered data in powerBI report using Power Automate. It gives me an excel file as I wanted.

Besides that, I want the names of the applied filter in another excel file. For example, say I have a report in which there are two slicers- Country & Year. So if I select Country = Egypt & Year=2018 and then send this data, it will give me an additional excel file like this-

 

CountryEgypt
Year2018

 

Is it doable?

Hello, I also have a similar issue. My data exports based on the selections just fine using Power Automate. However, I Want the fields selected to be included in the name of the file export so that users are not confused and it can limit the amount of work they have to do when I export. Every time I place the data field into the automate file name it just clears it out but still runs.

Hoping there is a way to name it. Seems like there should be.

@Cortana How do you get filtered data in Excel? I can send an excel in email but I can't get the slicer to filter the data.

Were you able to do it?

Yes, it turns out that the exported data is filtered automatically.
