Hi All....

Is there anyway to update airtable record via excel attachment (sent via email in Gmail)? 
So the flow is: 
1. I received an email in gmail. In the email, there is an excel (.xlsx) attachment. 
2. I need to add new airtable records based on the data in the excel. 

Is there anyway to do this? 
Thank you.

Hi @vaans 

Good question.

That will depend on the format of the XLS attachment.

Is it a flat file formatted like a CSV?

Also, you may have to deal with record limits. (see more below)


Check out this help article:


Here’s a help article about how to use CSV files in Zaps with Formatter > Utilities > Import CSV File:

NOTE: File size limit.


The Looping app can be used to iterate thru a CSV file records:

NOTE: 500 record limit.
