Error 400: There was an error accessing the file - Convert Word Document

Please note the duplicate topic of this does not solve my problem.  

 

I have a flow (manually triggered right now) to generate a word document with repeating rows and then converting to a pdf.  I can see in the failed details that the flow is grabbing the data needed to generate the repeating rows and that the word document itself is getting generated.  However flow is failing when converting that word doc to a pdf.  

 

I am getting this error when trying open the Word Doc.

Here is my flow:

I tested this by using only content control for the Input of the manual trigger and it did work fine.  However once I added the table and content controls for the repeating sections it has started to fail.

 

Here is what the template looks like:

On the first try I inputted 56 and "000005" did change to 56 and the entire flow ran I had produced the pdf doc.  As I said inserting the table and the content controls (both repeating rows and plain text control) it has since stopped working the the error above.  

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.

 

 

EDIT**************************  I deleted the repeating rows out of the template and refreshed my flow.  The flow works now.  So the issue lies with the repeating rows.

 

EDIT2************************  I must have messed up when selecting the part of the table that would be repeating.  I have since added the table back and selected it a different way (i highlight the content by clicking and dragging my mouse, the first time i clicked on the very left of the row).  It now works.
