How to read file contents when file name is unknown

I am trying to create a flow that will read the contents of a text file when it is uploaded into a SharePoint online library.  Files are uploaded daily.  Although the format and content layout within the files are the same, the file name is not consistent.  How may Flow read the files content when the file name is unknown?  Please provide example. 

 

Thanks,

ARobinson15

Hi,

 

You need to use the trigger when file is created.

 

Then just get the file content and do whatever you need to it.
