Populate a Word template - The image is not of type PNG or JPG.

Hi, I'm using a Form to get input from my users. I'm using the information given via the Form to populate a Word template. Any file that is uploaded with the Form, is moved from the /Apps/Microsoft Forms/... folder to a newly created folder (that also stores the populated Word template). This all works fine. What I still want to do is to include any uploaded picture into my Word template (using the appropriate Controls in the Word file):


I first check if there are any documents uploaded (the Form limits the type to Image). Then I move the uploaded files one by one to a new folder (this works) and I append an array variable with the content of the moved file:


To populate my Word file, I do this:


When my flow runs, I receive an error:



I have tried with uploaded images of type png, jpeg, jpg. Is my array wrong?

Hey @rubenVdk 

In content try to add file content. Hopefully works.

Hi @Sundeep_Malik ,


I tried but that didn't resolve the issue. Any other possibility? Or do you know of another way to get the uploaded images from a Form into a Word template?

I have not done it before.

But I will suggest you not use that variable thing but directly add file content in that if possible.
