You would need to add Microsoft Flow into the mix. There is an action for Covert Word Document to PDF that should be just what you are looking for.

Thanks @Shanescows  for your response.

In fact, i know that i can use a flow to convert word to pdf. But, my problem is thathow to extract the word file wich is attached to an item in sharepoint. So, i have a list in sharepoint wich is viewed as a gallery in powerapps and if i select an item in the gallery i want to view the fle in pdf format. That's exactly what i want to do.

 

Thanks very much

You would send the ID of the list item from PowerApps to Flow. Then have Flow get attachment from the SharePoint item. Then you can send it to the convert action.
