Autonaming files from a template

Hi everybody and merry christmas,

 

I'm new to sharepoint and power automate, and I have some trouble to understand the philosophy behind it. There is something I'd like to achieve, but I'm going to need some help.

 

So I have a list named "Contracts", in this list I create some folders let's say "Folder 1", "Folder 2" ...

 

Inside all of this folders, I can create three types of xlsx documents based on  three types of templates: "A", "B", "C".

 

What I want to do is to automatically rename the xlsx documents based on three variables:

 

- the name of the template I used to create the document

- the ongoing year

- an incremental number based on precedent created file. 

 

Example:

 

-I create an xlsx document based on template A in folder 1: his name will be "A-2022-0001"

- I create another xlsx document based on template A, but in Folder 2: his name will be "A-2022-0002"

- I create an xlsx document based on template B in folder 1: his name will be "B-2022-0001"

 

I guess Power Automate could help me doing this, but I have no idea how.

I hope I've made a clear explanation, my english is a bit rusty.

Thanks!
