Trouble updating file properties with Folder Path

I have flow where a create a folder and then save image in it through PowerApps.

In PowerApps I need to filter the folders based on path of images, so I added a column ActualFolderPath to the sharepoint folder.

After creating folder, I update file properties with Folder Path and it works fine, giving value /msdyn_workorder/ in the ActualFolderPath column.

The next action is creating a file, followed by Update File Properties action again, this is where I run into problems.Capture1.PNG

As you can see I have given Folder Path as the value to be saved in ActualFolderPath. But it saves only /msdyn_workorder/ and does not include parent folder of the image.

This is what I get when I test the flow:

In the output part of the test the Folder Path does show the correct value that I want to be saved, but for some reason its not saving it:

So the Folder Path that I am using in first image does contain the correct value but it is not reflecting in the addition column ActualFolderPath

Can anyone help?

Re: Trouble updating file properties with Folder Path

Got the solution.

Had to add Get File Properties action after Create File action and then use the Folder Path from that action to populate ActualFolderPath column.
