Convert to PDF fails when it tries to convert a PDF

I need to convert MS Forms attachments to PDF.  The attachments can be many different file types, including PDF.  The conversion is working for the most part, but fails when it tries to convert a PDF.  How can I get the flow to skip files that are already PDFs?  Later in the flow I want to merge all the PDFs together.

Hi @pgoosea

 

Could you please share a screenshot of the configuration of the flow?

You need to check if the file name with extension contains the .pdf or .PDF before convert the file.
