Populate Word Template with Multiple Images submitted from Forms

Hi everyone,


I want to ask if anyone has an idea of how to resolve this. I've using several posts to finally achieve the posibility to use a Form to upload files, attach them to a new item on SharePoint, generate a PDF Report with the submitted answer and also attach it to the item on SharePoint.


But, I would like to see if there's a chance to populate one Word Template with different images uploaded from Forms.


The details:

- I've already created a Word Template with 3 fields to upload an image:




- I do have a Form with 3 question where users can upload 1 image on each question.



- I've made a Flow with 3 JSON Parse to obtain the details of those files:



- But, when I want to use "Get file content using path" (Onedrive Business) Flow generates automaticaly an "Apply to each" that will not generate an output with the file content. Meaning that I can't use the image file to populate the word template on a step out of the "Apply to each".



How can I populate this 3 image fields?


Feel free to ask if anything is not clear or if you need more information/screenshots.


Thanks a lot for your help.


Best regards.

Hi @ChrisCollao ,


In Parse JSON you are using array when you are having only one file. so ideally you should not be using Apply to each loop to populate word file. Instead use First(body('Parse_JSON')?['yourfilecontent'].

Hi guys,

same problem.

What should I insert in 'yourfilecontent'?

Can you post the correct filled expression?

Thank you very much


Hi @Anonymous 


Sorry, few days ago I answered but I don't know what happened with the post 🙁


You must use the tag 'name' on that portion. Here is the complete sentence:




Also you have to note that the 'Parse_JSON' part must have the full name of the Parse JSON step you created.


In my case:



The full sentence is: first(body('Parse_JSON_-_Img_Anomalia_IF_1'))?['name']


Hope this help you.


Let me know.

Hello @ChrisCollao 


Thanks for this answer, I've been looking for a solution like this for many days, 


Please could you please, submit the complete flow from start until the end with the generated pdf with multiples images,


I have another question, do you know how to replace these fields collecting information from MS Forms, to start collecting all fields and images from power apps?


Waiting for prompt response,





I am currently trying to get a forms uploaded image into my word document. Sadly i am getting one of 2 errors. 

-The file id 'test.png' is not valid.


-The image is not of type PNG or JPG. Please provide an image of type PNG or JPG.


Could anyone help?

Hi @Timothy2 , do you have a screenshot of the error?



Hi @ChrisCollao, I'm running into the same error as @Timothy2, I believe. Can you please advise? Many thanks in advance!!

Seems to be "seeing" my jpg and PNG, but output is 400:


Here's the flow w/ error details:


Here's the Parse JSON & Get file content for attachment 1:


 I'm using this schema: 

    "items": {
        "properties": {
            "name": {
            "link": {
            "id": {
            "type": {},
            "size": {
            "referenceId": {
            "driveId": {
            "status": {
            "uploadSessionUrl": {}
        "required": [

 And here's my first expression: first(body('Parse_JSON_-_Attachment_1'))?['name']


Please let me know if you need any additional details, and thanks again!
