SharePoint Delete file with flow

Obviously in the absence of a move option in Flow I have to copy then delete a file. For some reason I can make flow copy using FOLDER PATH,FILE NAME as source but it will not delete using the same. It says file not found. Please help

Re: SharePoint Delete file with flow

Hi @MarkSmart,

 

Could you share a screenshot of your flow?

 

It seems that you are trying to copy file from one library to another, then delete the file from the original library.

 

If yes, please take the following screenshot for a reference.

 

In the Delete file action, select the File identifier from the trigger. It works fine on my side.

Re: SharePoint Delete file with flow

Many thanks, it was the file identifier I needed. Works perfectly now. Very new to this and not a programmer so appreciate the time you took.
