Get SharePoint File



I am wanting to know if someone can confirm or not the following please:



I am building a ‘simple’ Copy and paste action of a sharepoint file from one location to another each month. The colleague names it in a rather awkward fashion but I’m able to dynamically copy the location in a string using a variable in Power Automate. 

I named this variable “Get_File_From”.


when I place it into the relevant “get file from” box. I get an error that it does not exist.


The variable is named exactly correctly when looking at the output of the test run.


When placing a variable instead of the selection from the folders in the Get File From box do I need to wrap the variable in parentheses? Or is it something else?
