Is it possible to get data from several Excel files and show them on a SharePoint Online dashboard? How?

Hi there

Is it possible to get information from several Excel files, and show it on a SharePoint Online dashboard like a KPI? How?
(I need to show two cells from excel1, four cells from excel2, and so on from many excel files (on to our dashboard).
All Excel files reside within the same website in SharePoint Online.

Thank you.

Hi @frob,

If you want to get data from one Excel file and show it on SharePoint Online. I would suggest you add File viewer web part then select your excel file. 5 Tips for Showing Excel Dashboards in SharePoint Online

Now you need to get data from several Excel files, you could use Power BI to combine data from several Excel files. Combining Excel Files hosted on a SharePoint folder with Power BI

Hi @CaseyYangMSFT-4714

I do not need to show a complete excel file in SP Online.
I need to show two cells from excel1, four cells from excel2, and so on from many excel files (on to our dashboard).

Is this possible with SharePoint Online? How?

Thank you.
