Hey @Englishweb 

 

Just to confirm, have you added flow in the button's action? Where are you getting this error? For some reason i don't see an image in your response.

Hi @Englishweb 

 

Directly, you cannot convert to html files in PowerApps. As a solution to this, you need to create a flow, which takes inputs from powerapps, then process the data and create a file in Sharepoint, One drive etc. A similar scenario is built in one of my blogs, please refer: https://www.appliedis.com/newly-released-json-function-for-powerapps/
 
You can create your flow as:

To call this flow from powerapps, you can register flow on a button in Powerapps and use the expression as:
'PowerApp->Createfile'.Run(HtmlText1.HtmlText)
 
'PowerApp->Createfile' is the name of flow and HtmlText1 is the control which holds the html value.

 

Hope this Helps!

Hello 

'Createfile'.Run(HtmlText1.HtmlText)

Createfile is the name of the flow, HtmlText1 is the Html textbox containing the data (see image)

I'm trying to save the html file to Onedrive for business

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks
