Creating a powerapp that submits to a sharepoint document library as a document and not a list

I have a lot of InfoPath forms I need to recreate in Powerapps. So I am creating a canvas powerapp that I want to submit itself to a Sharepoint online form library (similar to what an InfoPath form will do). What submit syntax do I use to get it to submit to the form library. Is this functionality even possible?

Thank you.

If you created additional columns after you added the list as a data source then you need to refresh the connection to the list at the data source level to pick up the new schema.

There is no comparable functionality built into Power Apps.  What you would have to do is manually save the form info as an XML file.  There is no way to do that with a simple submit.  Its probably possible using Power Automate, but I don't think it would be worth the effort.  The comparable concept in Power Apps would be to create a list with all the fields in it and a Power App form to access the list.

I PStork1,

When I create the list, I do not see the list items when I connect the form to the data source. The only fields I see are the default fields, not the fields i created.
