Sharepoint: Dynamic conversion from Word doc to PDF

I have a dynamically created word doc I created and added to a sharepoint list as a download within a list item (name will change every time):

Create Item

Populate a Microsoft Word Template

Add Attachment

 

I'd like to then convert that word doc to a PDF using:

Word (Online Business): Convert Word Document to PDF

 

I cant seem to find the list location as an option in this flow item. I also get errors when I use one of the three options to add dynamically from Add Attachment as the location:

Id

AbsoluteUri

DisplayName

 

How do I convert the word doc to a PDF dynamically from the list attachment (since it *will* be different every time).

@TesDA - I think you should save word document to a library and use ID of that document to convert to PDF.  Action is expecting a path in doc library.
