Convert to PDF Issue

Hi team, 

 

I have an issue converting a word doc to PDF from within sharepoint. When configuring the flow, the action to convert says the file is not there. Which it is not but the file is created right before that action goes off, then automate should go in and convert it. Because that file doesn't exist as i configure, it is giving me an issue. Can someone please chime in? Please see screenshots below.

Try adding a Get File between the Create File and the Convert to PDF.  The create File isn't instantaneous and you need to make sure the file exists in SharePoint before moving on.  The Get File should do retries if the file isn't instantly available.  That way you won't try to convert it until the file is there.
