Populate a Microsoft Word template not adding fields

I've created a Power Automate flow to populate certain fields of a report in Microsoft Word from a Microsoft Forms response.

 

The flow runs and says it is successful, but when I got into the Word document afterwards, the fields have not been updated.

 

I used the developer tab in Word to insert 'Plain Text Content Control' to map the form fields to.

 

I'm sorry as I know there seems be to be lots on this topic on here already, but I couldn't find anything that helped my situation! 

 

My template file is saved on OneDrive for Business.

 

Any help is appreciated!

Hi @LaurenAddison ,

 

The original world template will not be updated, you need to create new file using the file content returned by the 'Populate a Microsoft Word template', something like:
