Populate a Microsoft Word template failing



I am attempting to populate a Micrsoft word template. I have added plain text content control and populated them in flow with dynamic content.



Unfortunately, I am receiving this error when run. 




This occurs if I attempt to pull the template from either SharePoint or OneDrive.


I am not sure what it means. Is this possibly an issue with the word doc?


Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Populate a Microsoft Word template failing

Hi @Turtlestein 


What trigger are you using for the flow? Is it from powerapps? If so, pleasae go and first deregister the flow from the powerapp control and then re-register it. 


If not, Yo umight want to delete the current connection to Word from your flow and then create a new one. Alternatively, this could be a caching issue so you can close the current session and start a fresh one and run the flow to check if you continue to face the same error. 


Hope this Helps!

Hi @Turtlestein ,


Please try to export this Flow as a .zip file and re-import it as a new Flow.

After configuring the connection, this problem should be ruled out.

Please take a try.
