Conditional Format of Word Doc

I have an interesting issue I'm hoping you can help with. 

 

What I currently have (works fine) : 

  • PowerApp connected to a Sharepiont Custom List
  • Flow that grabs each new record from SP list, creates a .doc, converts .doc to .pdf
  • Flow uploads .pdf to a SP Document Library

I need to conditionally format some of the items in the .pdf in red based on what is entered in the PowerApp. 

 

Example: 

  • If user marks a question in the PowerApp with "Exceptions Taken", I need the final .pdf to turn that item red to attract the eyes of the person reading. 

 

Anyone know of a way to accomplish this somewhere in the Flow? I'm thinking of a way to grab the .doc and apply conditional formatting there, but I dont' know how to go about it. 

 

Thank you

Hi @ericonline,

 

Do you want to format some of the items in the .pdf in red with microsoft flow?

Where is the items in the .pdf?Is it in the sharepoint?

 

If you would like to format some of the items in the .pdf in red with microsoft flow, I afraid there is no any way in Microsoft flow could achieve yoour needs.

 

Best regards,

Alice

Hello @v-yuazh-msft

 

I understand that conditionally formatting a finished .pdf is not possible. I'd like to "grab" the content before the .pdf is created and turn it red based on text. 

 

  • Somewhere between the PowerApp and the Sharepoint List
  • Somewhere between the Sharepoint List and the Word doc that is created
  • Somewhere between the Word doc and the PDF

I'm using an advanced method which uses a doc repo with columns that match the original Sharepoint list AND a Word doc with Quick Parts / Document Properties.
