Hi Gurus,

 

I receive a pdf file with an embedded Microsoft Excel file.  I would like to save the embedded file somewhere for further processing in Power BI.  Here is the kicker; I want to automate this process.  I don't want to have to open the pdf file, open the excel document, then save it somewhere.  I am already using Power Automate to save the pdf somewhere, but I'd like a solution to complete the workflow i.e., save the embedded excel file somewhere.  The pdf file is just the wrapper, it's really the excel file I want.

Thanks,

Alden.

Hi @Alden21815180ox16 ,

 

Our APIs do not currently offer ability to extract the embedded Excel file programmatically via Power Automate, but I have passed on your suggestion to the product team.

 

Your best option for getting the PDF is to open the PDF in Acrobat Reader or Acrobat and use the Attachments panel.
