Hi @Tapesh_Patel ,

 

If you want to store the file to the list, as far as I know, add attachment is the only option.

Hi @Tapesh_Patel ,

 

Could you please tell us which tutorial you are referring to configure your Flow so that we could reproduce the same flow to do a further analysis?

Hi @Tapesh_Patel ,

 

I have checked the video and do some tests about this tutorial.

I noticed that the author did not use Parse Json action, could you tell me what you want to achieve by using this action?

 

It seems that we only need to fill ask in PowerApps in the File Name and File content field and pass the expected parameter in PowerApps.

Please make sure you have configured the right file name/extension and file content in these two fields. You could check the run history and see if the value of the field is as expected.

 

Besides, following is the most important step:

Hi @v-bacao-msft 

 

I tried to run the test and also i performed the separate action using limited source, i can see that file is parsed the way it has to be and then also stored in some library, the issue here is, i want to use this functionality to update my sharepoint column, which is named as Bills, which then a person who has access to only view the SPlist can download and see the files, how ever the flow which he showed is not about the items or List, the flow is all about how he is storing the data first after parsing it and then he is getting same and uploading them to Document list, which i feel is not okay to mee i want the data to be stored in same list where my other list items are stored. 

 

 

I know this is bit tricy, but i m not saying if this is only the solution for getting things done,

if you have any other option please let me know how any file can be saved to SP list, 

 

my approach to this is Attachment column, but i dont know will this is be proper to use or not. 

if you have any other solution please share with me.

Thanks
