Create a Word Docx from Microsoft Forms using String Data


Hi there, 


I am trying to build a Flow to convert my Microsoft Form into a Word Doc and I got most of the way by reading other posts but it seems the Convert to HTML step fails whenever it encounters a String response, it requires Arrays. Is there another way to pull String Reponses out of Forms to automatically create a Word Docx?


"BadRequest. The 'from' property value in the 'table' action inputs is of type 'String'. The value must be of type 'Array'."



Format: HTML

Hi @Onebadterran,


If it encounters a String response, I guess it is a multiple-choice answer, the Create HTML table action only accept the array of objects, for example:

"Column1": "Test1",
"Column2": "Test2"
"Column1": "Test3",
"Column2": "Test4"
