Getting data from a function in an on-prem SQL server via Gateway in Power Automate

Dataflow magic in Power Automate. SQL with Power Query in Power Automate. Did you know you can do this?

CloudMinded Blog

“We are screwed!”

me at the moment of technology induced panic

That was the feeling when I saw the below error messages.

The client’s setup is an on-prem SQL server exposed to the cloud via an on-prem Gateway. It works perfectly fine for exiting Dataflow integration, but this time we needed data from a function in Power Automate.

Now problem, you can use SQL server connector, right?

Almost (but yes, if you read this post or knew before).

Set back #1

You cannot use “Execute a SQL query (V2)” with an on-prem gateway connection. Not supported!

Sure, let’s then use “Execute stored procedure (V2)”.

Set back #2

Apparently, you cannot return dataset from the function. Can call it if it was just a function or procedure without return value. But if it returns data – bad luck!

Panic mode on!

Wait, but what if…

Power Query to the rescue! Again.

Dataflows for Power Apps: transform fixed-width text files

What is a fixed width text file? Data in a fixed-width text file is arranged in rows and columns, with one entry per row. Each column has a fixed width, specified in characters, which determines the maximum amount of data it can contain. No delimiters are used to separate the fields in the file. Could we load data from… Continue reading Dataflows for Power Apps: transform fixed-width text files
