Is there a way to remove empty form fields when using power automate Populate a Microsoft word template?

Hi all,

I have a PowerApp to select data options, this is populating a word template using the "populate a Microsoft Word template" connector.  The same flow saves the created word file into a shared folder and then adds selected details to a SharePoint register/list.  Everything is working perfectly, however, there is still some editing needed in the Word document - due to the number of options that leave fields empty (this is because the data contains a number of conditions that can be applied and a variety of remediations to alleviate those conditions).  Does anyone have any suggestions on how I could automatically remove the empty/unused fields from the resulting word document?  Thanks

Hi @Maree2 ,


Do you want to delete blank content control in word ?

If my assumptions is correct, this requirement is currently not achievable.


Best Regards,


Yes, thanks that is what I was looking for but couldn't find.  Cheers Maree
