Can't use a single Microsoft Word Template

So I'm trying to create a vacation app/flow.  Basically I will have them fillout a form.  Then I want that form to fill in a word document.  Here's the issue  I can't get the "populate a microsoft word document" to work.  I have tried saving it to sharepoint and onedrive.  I can't even get the connector to see any of the files.  I've tried saving them as .dotx and dotm.  I've used a plain text control editor for the areas that need to be filled in.  Why can't I get flow to see my document?  I did get it to see one, but then this is the error  I recieved:

Error executing the api '/api/templates/schema'

Re: Can't use a single Microsoft Word Template

Although the name of the action suggests it. This action only works with docx file extensions instead of .dotx. Try saving your file as docx and try to hook it up again in your Flow 🙂

No worries. Exactly the same thing happened to me. That's why I was able to answer this question 😉
