Copying File error 400 Member 'Level' was not found

Hi guys, this was probably tackled before and I have searched but found very little to actually help on this one so any help would be fantastic. The Flow is supposed to copy the file but it returns an error 400 with message:

 

 Bad Request:

Member 'Level' was not found.

 

Photos uploading not working on this post specifically, figure that one out (just my rotten luck)
I specifically created a test Flow for this and it ONLY has:
`For a selected File`
`get file properties`
`Copy file`
 
Copying file setup:
Current Site Address:              sharepoint.com/sites/test
File to copy:                             Identifier (from `get file properties`)
Destination Site Address:        sharepoint.com/sites/test
Destination Folder:                  /TestingLibrary
if another file is already there: Copy...
Note that the file is originally in a library called DevLibrary and is being copied to TestingLibrary.

Any help or solution would be great

Reminder that 'Identifier' is from get file properties and had a value of: 'In%2bDev%2bPolicies%252fDemo%2bDocument.docx'

@Anonymous:

 

I don't see anything obvious that is wrong with your Flow.

 

Does this error occur on all files that you select?

 

Does the content type in the source library exist in the destination library?

 

Can you post a screen shot of a Flow run - specifically can you post a screen shot of where the error occurred and the error description?

It seems like most newly uploaded file worked but this error remains for a fair bit of .docx
I also verified earlier than both libraries actually share columns imported from the site rather than have individual types and they have almost identical columns (the second library has more columns but they are absent in the first)

@Anonymous:

 

I have had similar issues if the libraries are not identical.  I could never figure out why......

 

I usually work around these issues by using a create file action rather than a copy file action:

CreateFile.jpg 

 

You'll need to follow-up with an update file properties action to set the values of the columns.

 

If this answers your question, please mark your post as solved.

Hi @Anonymous,

 

My flow would always works well when copy file from a folder to another folder.

Have you take a try with @ScottShearer's solution to use the "Create file" action instead of "Copy file" action to achieve the requirement?

 

Best regards,

Alice

Hello @Anonymous

 

Been having the same issues with copy file, have not found the cause or even see a pattern in when and why the errors are occuring.
I have no explanation sorry.
