Powerapps Button Populate Word Template

Hello everyone. I hope this is a simple answer, and I've tried searching but I don't seem to know what to look for exactly. 


Ive created a flow that I want it to be triggered by a Powerapp button. The flow will 'Populate a Word Template' with the information from the Gallery that is linked to a Sharepoint List and save the file on OneDrive. I've managed to get it working, the only problem is that when the flow is triggered, it populates and creates a file for every item on the list, whereas I just want to populate the form for one single item, more specifically the item that has been selected from the Gallery. I believe it has to do something with what to reference the Flow trigger, which is what I don't know what to do. Any help will do. Thank you!

Hi @Eddie4763 ,

Please send me your Flow run code - also are you using the (Premium) word connector or the "Quick Parts" workaround?

I managed to figure it out. My flow was using Sharepoint Controls instead of "Ask in Powerapps". All resolved. Thank you!

Hey @Eddie4763, I'm trying to create something similar to what you have done, could you explain how you got the correct outcome? I have the PowerApp that updates the Sharepoint list but now I want to populate Word document from one item on the Sharepoint List. Could you help?
