Attachment From PowerApps to PowerAutomate and output back to PowerApps

Hello all,


I'm in need of assistance here. 


I'm using a separate attachment control copied from a form and using a file attachment as an input to run a flow using PowerAutomate. Afterwards this flow is supposed to output back into PowerApps as a string variable.


I know I'll have to set a variable while running the flow like so (not sure if this is correct):

Set(SavedVar, ForAll(DataCardValue33_1.Attachments, Flow.Run({file: {contentBytes:Value, name:Name}})));  - note I'm not getting any error with this.


After my PowerAutomate flow finishes it outputs a text string named "TextOutput"

However, when I try default a text label as TextOutput:



I get TextOutput isn't recognized. I'm assuming this is an error with the way I set the variable as I've used powerautomate outputs before but never with an attachment.


Any help would be great!

Hi all I was able to figure out the issue!

I believe because of the ForAll function it made my variable save as a table instead of a text string - This is why I was not able to simply use my variable in a text label. I had to do the following to access the text value IN the table:

Index(SavedVar, 1).TextOutput
