I'm having trouble with the word to PDF step in my flow.
For some reason, it runs perfectly when you put in the file name manually (1):
But when you try to do it with dynamic content, it fails (2):
I looked at both flows after they ran, and they seem to have the exact same parameters, to the letter. Yet one fails (as you can see below). so I am at a loss of what to do.
This is the entire flow at the moment (I've been trying different dynamic values in the word-to-pdf but no luck):
I have made some tests for your issue on my side.
I have tired dynamic content value like: ID ,Name, File Name with extension.
They all have the same issue like yours.
So, I’m afraid you can only choose the File manually here.
As the Connector Reference explain: you can only ' Select a Word file through File Browse '.
If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:
I am looking for the same feature as well. There is now an idea thread for this feature.
Please vote for it if you need/want this, too:
You can select the file dynamically, For example by using the Displayname from the "Create file Word"-connector.
It works just fine.
BUT when 2 or more persons run the flow at the same time, The pdf converter can not find the file.
I have tried using the ID but that doesn't work either.
PLEASE fix this! Otherwise it's no use having this connector.
