Filename datatype in SharePoint - When a file is created in a folder

When I create the below flow using SharePoint - When a file is created in a folder trigger, the filename returned is not in a usable format to process downstream. I figure I have to convert it, but I don't understand the data type returned in the first place.

Hi @Dennis727 

 

Use action get file metadata by path and provide the file path dynamic content obtained by the trigger

 

this will give you all the details
