I'm currrently testing the "Populate a Microsoft Word template" premium flow for a timesheet solution I am creating the PowerApps.
In the PowerApp I have a report screen (collection shown in a gallery) which I would like to pass into Flow which will populate a word template.
I'm fine when it comes to single fields etc but can I pass the entire collection in PowerApps into a table in the word document?
Hi @sanderson82 ,
Currently repeating content controls such as those used in tables are not supported.

Hi @sanderson82 ,
Do you want to transfer the data of the table in excel to the word file?
At present, there is no suitable workaround to do this in Flow.
The Populate a Microsoft Word template action only supports input multi fields, but tables are not supported.
There is a similar idea, you can vote it so that users may easily cast their vote upon reading this thread:
I seen from the previous comment it was not possible so therefore I'm attempting a different approach. Using JSON (I have no experience with this) I have the collection data in an array in a text field within my app.
I'm trying to see if I can then parse this array in flow and add the data to the word document in a formatted way.
I'm starting to think however I may only be able to use e-mails the the parsed JSON in an html table.
