I want to be able to start a flow that will "Get Items" ( multiple ) from sharepoint List and add them to a table in a word document along with saving the document a Document Library on sharepoint. Columns of the sharepoint list contain rich text format ( bullets, underline, bold, etc ) and the format needs to be transferred as well. I have reviewed several solutions using Document Library with Content Type, along with flow and the "Create File' and 'Update File Properties' however all the solutions I have seen deal only with a single list item. I need to generate word document with multiple list items and retain all formating. Appreciate any Ideas, links etc on how this can be achieved. FYI, I also attempted Excel Create Table in flow and added rows based on the sharepoint list. This worked nicely except Excel will not recognize the rich text format.

This is one of the references I have already pursued. It does not solve my problem. It is a great example of creating a Word Document from a single Sharepoint List item. My requirement is different in that i need to generate a word document that contains multiple Sharepoint List items ( maybe as an embeded table within the word document). As well I need the rich text formating to carry over into the Word Document.
Hi @reynoldsdl ,
First, I suggest you create a table in the excel.
Then you can add each item into the table with 'Apply to each' action.
I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:

The issue with this approach is tha the rich text going into excel colum is not formatted as rich text and show the htlm tags. Is there a way to retain the rich text format?
@reynoldsdl I am trying to do this same thing now with multiple items from a sharepoint list, were you able to make this work somehow?
