Making a copy of .gsheet file within Google Drive

I'm trying to duplicate a google spreadsheet file within google drive using the Google Drive Connector

Is there a proper syntax in the Destination file path field to get a proper copy of the original google sheet file? What I'm ending up with every time is an unrecognized file type.

 

Would appreciate any suggestion

@OleksandrB  what you are going to do using that action is trying to copy a file from a place to another. 

if yout want to create a new sheet with the name of the your google sheet you need to do this.

@ChristianAbata Thank you for your suggestion! It will definitely help me in the future. However, what I want to accomplish is to create a file within the google drive (not a copy in OneDrive).

Thank you @v-alzhan-msft Alice. I actually tried that solution, and it gets me a weird result: instead of content of my source sheet the result is as follows:

The question asked about copying Google spreadsheets not Excel spreadsheets. so the .xlsx answers are not helping, I'm afraid.. I'm having the same problem. The Power Automate Google Drive copy file action copies the file but, since we don't know how to tell it "this is a Google sheet", what is created acts as a folder instead of a sheet.
