Populate Word Template without premium license.

My client has a word template that needs to be populated using PowerApps, but all the solutions that I found on internet are through the use of Power Automate and connector used is premium connector. My client does not agree to purchase license so what options do I have?

Hi @unaseerb ,

You can populate a Word template using quick parts and a SharePoint library as per this link from Laura Rogers @WonderLaura .

It works quite well, but is quite a task as a “duplicate” library needs to be created to house the merge criteria fields.

Hi @WarrenBelz 

Thanks for the link it works, now I am wondering how can I add repeating section in the word template and feed SharePoint list values in repeating section of word template. If you have any idea than please 

Hi @unaseerb ,

You cannot add a repeating section with the Quick a parts process. I believe it is possible with the Premium Word connector, but I have never needed to do it.

Hi @WarrenBelz 

Do you know how can I convert this generated word document into PDF format without a premium connector?

@unaseerb ,

If you save the merged Word file in OneDrive, there is a PDF conversion option in that connector.

Hi @WarrenBelz 

One last question, how can I add image in word template and populate it using SharePoint.

Hi @unaseerb ,

I can tell you with a fair amount of certainty that it is not possible with the Quick Parts process as I explored this a while back and ended using the Premium Connector (which is also a far less complex process) for embedding signatures in merged documents.
