using html and powerapps to create a pdf file in flow

Hi 

 

I have very little experience with Flow.  I am trying to create an HTML file from PowerApps data.  I have got mechanics of the flow working but when the HTML file is created in Flow it shows as text ,i.e. the code, rather than the result. So rather than 'G' the text shows as '"&Gallery2.Selected.srOverallRAG&" '.  The HTML in powerapps works as designed.  As the code works in Powerapps  I guess the way I've built the flow makes it read the code as text but I can't find a way to solve the problem.  

 

The flow is launched in Powerapps with a button with this code in 'OnSelect'.  'PowerApp->Createfile'.Run(HtmlText1.HtmlText)'

 

I am using this code in the Create file > file content selector:  CONCAT('') with the html copied from powerapps inbetween the single quotes. 

 

The powerapps code sits within the HTML as per the following extract (it is within HTML tags) :   

 


"&Gallery2.Selected.srOverallRAG&"


"&Gallery2.Selected.Title& " "& Text(Gallery2.Selected.srReportDate,"[$-en-US]dd/mm/yyyy","en-GB")&"

 

I would appreciate any help you could give me.

 

Thanks

so I found the issue - the CONCAT() expression was not needed for this - I just replaced this with 'CreateFileFileContent' in the File Content field.
