Create Excel File In SharePoint - Error Message

I am creating a flow that will create two different excel files. It is working in the sense that it creates the files. However, when I try to open them - it gives me an error:

(opening in desktop doesn't help)

 

Any ideas what I am doing wrong?

Figured it out!

 

Apparently, I have to already have the file contents set up. Since I didn't have a file already - I created a template file and called that in to use as the "file contents". 

 

Also if there is an easier way to do this - I'm all ears! 🙂

Good to see your response that you find out the solution and posted it back to the community. I started to analyze this and jumped on other calls and looks you found the solution. Nice

Thanks though! Much appreciated!! FIgured if I'm gonna ask - I might as well respond cause I like to hope I'm not the only one who is not smart enough to get it right 100% of the time first time around 🙂 (I'm SLOWLY but surely getting better at this... wish there was like an all inclusive class I could take on flow!)
