Converting form responses to PDF not creating usable PDF

I'm trying to create a PDF that is generated from a Microsoft Form and sent to a specific email address whenever the form is submitted.

 

With the flow below I'm able to send myself an HTML file, for some reason it is not converting to a PDF. I have managed to send myself a PDF but I've never been able to open it properly as it hasn't been decoded correctly.

Does anyone have any idea why this might be or where I'm going wrong?

Hey @Shasley 

 

Can you confirm that you are using the dynamic content from the convert pdf action itself : (I ask because I see an extra get file content action there. Note that the convert action is just converting the file temporarily but not creating a new pdf there. )fff.PNG

 

Hope this Helps!

Thanks @yashag2255,

 

I've re-run the flow with your suggested edit and I'm now able to open the PDF, however, all the file contains is:

Hey @Shasley 

 

Can you try using a compose action to compose everything for the html file content? 

 

Also, can you try .html extension instead of the .htm extension and see if it works?

 

Hope this Helps!

Hi @yashag2255,

 

Thanks for your help on this.

 

It is now working. The only issue now is that it's just displaying the contents of the file on one line which is obviously not very attractive. Is there an easy way to edit the styling?

 

Many thanks.
