Check if file uploaded to SharePoint is .pptx

This seems criminally simple, but everytime this flow runs, it evaluates to false (it's definitly .pptx files being added to the folder!). Is there a better way to test for PowerPoint file types (I suppose I should also check for .ppt) or why is this not doing what I think it should be?

Re: Check if file uploaded to SharePoint is .pptx

@BungleBrain :

 

I had the same experience as you - don't know why this isn't working as you would expect.

As a work around, select the File identifier column from Dynamic Properties rather than the File Name.  When I changed my Flow to use the File Identifier in the condition, it works.
